Financial Inclusion in Trade Roadmap Launched

The World Trade Board launched the ‘Financial Inclusion in Trade’ Roadmap, focusing on fair and equitable access to trade finance to empower MSMEs and SMEs, and calling for industry feedback and collaboration. Please submit feedback to [email protected].

The Financial Inclusion in Trade Roadmap identifies five key areas where coordinated action can make a significant impact. These include digital infrastructure, legal/regulatory infrastructure, data infrastructure, technical assistance and new funding sources. Crucially, the Roadmap aims to accelerate the pace of change by providing a holistic framework for public and private sector collaboration.

BAFT is one of the key contributors in the development of this roadmap, together with other notable industry partners, namely the ICC UK, IFC, FCI, and ITFA.
