Be a part of these popular trade finance workshops, offered in four North America cities. The Workshop is a deeper into LC related topics, and its smaller size optimizes interactive discussions amongst attendees and speakers. In addition to covering what’s new in LC’s, each year the topics change and range from compliance, TBML, technology, SWIFT updates and much more.
