Bringing India’s trade community together for well over a decade, GTR’s annual conference returned to India for its 13th year. Mumbai provided an ideal location for local and international delegates to meet face-to-face with market peers, share expertise and experiences first-hand and create networking leads, all while saving delegates time, travel and money.

Those in attendance this year included companies involved in exporting their goods globally, international corporates looking to enter the Indian market, financial institutions providing funding options, insurers and lawyers involved in covering these operations and any institution involved in international trade finance.
