This course provides both current and prospective entrepreneurs with detailed operational knowledge on the workings and applications of various export trade finance products, instruments and methods.
Focusing on real-world exporting experiences, this course takes participants on a journey through the trade finance industry with the aim of providing them with the ability to not only identify and access appropriate pre and post-shipment trade finance products, but also to effectively negotiate payment terms with buyers (importers).
