The 49th Annual International Trade and Forfaiting Conference will be held in Abu Dhabi – the capital of the United Arab Emirates, between 11-13 October, 2023 at the luxurious Ritz Carlton, Abu Dhabi Grand Canal Hotel.

At this year’s edition the conference will explore the opportunities that economic diversification and sustainability bring for regional businesses and banks, which is a significant aspect of trade innovation. The Middle East is moving beyond “Big Oil” towards economic diversification and sustainability, creating opportunities for businesses and banks in infrastructure, trade, smart technologies, and commercial outreach. In 2023 and beyond, ESG considerations will play a significant role amidst economic downturns, energy security pressures, and changing regulatory frameworks. Banks are innovating in the distribution of their trade assets to new investors.
