Event Details

The Cebu Action Plan calls for reforms to the secured transactions framework and the development of movable asset finance market in order to improve access to finance by SMEs, Agri business operators, traders, etc. Supply Chain Finance is a main part of the larger movable asset finance market. It has been found to be a useful and organized way of increasing business lending to the priority clients.

Following successful activities in the previous years, in partnership with SECO, ABAC, IFC and the State Bank of Vietnam are organizing the Fourth Conference on Supply Chain Finance in Asia Pacific. The topic for this year will be about how to develop a Supply Chain Finance (SCF) market in the context of emerging economies. Apart from the usual stock-taking of latest reforms and developments in the SCF industry across the Region, the event will discuss Agri Supply Chain Finance, support services for SCF, and the opportunities and challenges in developing the Vietnamese and other similar markets in APEC. About 200 participants are expected, including policy-makers, financial regulators, lending institutions, SCF support services providers, lead firms and their SME suppliers and distributors, etc.

Herewith, we would like to take pleasure in inviting you to participate in the Fourth APEC Conference on Supply Chain Finance, to be held at the Sheraton Hotel, 88 Dong Khoi, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam on November 11, 2019.
