National Bank of Fujairah participates at GTR MENA 2023

With unparalleled trade finance expertise, the bank aims to drive forward-thinking solutions to the trade finance sector in the region

The National Bank of Fujairah (NBF) has announced its participation at GTR (Global Trade Review) MENA 2023, the premier gathering connecting key individuals and organisations at the forefront of MENA trade, which starts today. Celebrating 20 years as the leading trade and export finance conference in the region, GTR enables NBF to provide a comprehensive overview on trade finance and contribute invaluable market insights.

NBF’s participation in the event comes at a time of great change both globally and in the region, from the ramifications of global economic headwinds (ranging from supply chain disruption to surging commodity prices and rampant inflation), to the excitement and optimism generated by the region’s many exciting transformation programmes. NBF’s contribution represents its growing commitment to supporting businesses in the UAE and its dedication to propel regional and international trade out of the UAE.

This year’s GTR event will have speakers discussing the most prominent challenges across the trade and export finance industry touching on a variety of topics ranging from taxation, sustainability, supply chain, digitalisation and growth, with the opportunity for the participants to network and connect with industry’s key experts from across the region. Venkiteswaran Ramasubhramoni, Head of Equipment & Technology Finance at NBF, will be part of a panel discussion exploring a case study on ‘Growing supply chain finance’. Also, as a member of the UAE Trade Connect, Devid Jegerson, Head of Customer Experience & Platform Development at NBF, will be speaking in the session on ‘Finding solutions to fighting trade-based crime’.

NBF has shown unparalleled commitment to supporting its clients’ journey towards success by extending end-to-end lending solutions. NBF boasts an extensive network of correspondent banks both in the UAE and abroad offering a one-stop shop for all its clients’ export requirements as well as a dedicated team offering tailored solutions for import activities.

GTR is an exclusive two-day in-person event held at Jumeirah Emirates Towers attended by over 60 key speakers; NBF’s participation reiterates its commitment towards the banking sector with the GTR event an enabler to the country’s sustainable economy.
