An excellent platform to feel the pulse of trade finance and to understand the headwinds for the industry.


“Hong Kong’s fintech industry has been steadily growing as banks continue to invest in the digitisation of their product and service offerings backed by strong support from government regulators,” says GTR Conference Producer, Aliza Mohsin. “All these efforts will result in greater collaborations between financial institutions and fintech companies.”

The GTR Asia Tradetech Forum 2018, putting #tradetech and #tradefinance at centre stage, highlighted the latest developments in trade technologies and their implementation, while providing a unique platform for the entire industry to network and explore business opportunities.

The event brought together a host of trade experts and new industry disrupters, and the agenda for the day highlighted pressing issues, prevalent trends and showcased some of the latest technological developments impacting the market. Wrapped up with excellent GTR’s Women in Trade Finance discussion, held in partnership with HSBC.
