Understanding Documents in Trade Finance

12 November 2018 - Vienna, Austria >>>


Understanding the function and effects of documents used in Trade Finance is essential to obtain financial security for all parties involved. Exporters and importers are responsible for making sure that the commercial contract stipulates appropriate documents.
