Events / 27-04-21 / Share Link

Pandemic-related challenges around the physical movement of people and documents saw a transformational year for trade digitisation in 2020, with adoption rocketing across the globe. Can the same be said for West Africa? Have regulators kept up with the pace of change? Which digital solutions and collaborations are broadening access to foreign liquidity for African banks and businesses?

Lanre Oloniniyi of Orbitt Capital, Nana Addo of Imperion Energy, James Kasuyi of Bank One, Margrith Lütschg-Emmenegger of TradeAssets, Sofiene Ben Slimane of Africinvest Private Credit, and Philip Boyall of Finastra utilised recent deal case studies, to explore emerging digitised trade financing opportunities and how they can be accessed, and assess the further work required to ensure local banks and companies are not left at a competitive disadvantage.
