Comment (for example hall and stand number)
Following exceptional feedback from the 2011 conference - which attracted over 260 high-level delegates - Exporta are delighted to return to Cairo for the 5th Annual Egypt Trade & Export Finance Conference. The event will bring together the key decision makers from local and international financial institutions as well as prominent multinational and SME organisations undertaking essential trade which is crucial to economic growth.

In what has been a turbulent time for not only Egypt, but the region as a whole, expert speakers will offer their unique insights into their operational challenges and where priorities now stand regarding funding shortages due to the scarcity of liquidity. The speakers will come from a range of organisations which are all involved in trade finance – giving delegates a fully rounded independent perspective of the market, which cannot be found anywhere else.

As with all of Exporta’s global events, networking is a key feature of the day. With numerous networking breaks and an extended lunch at the Four Seasons Hotel at Nile Plaza, delegates will have the opportunity to meet old friends and make new business contacts in a vibrant and comfortable setting.


Among the topics to be discussed:
• Assessing the impact of the political landscape on current trade flows
