Greetings From ASSOCHAM,

 

A growth the word trade indices have turned positive in 2016 and are likely to touch the pre-2014 level of Trade turnover and further likely to spur in 2017. The world is confronted with an inward looking US economy, fall out of BREXIT negotiations, protectionist policy thrust in many advanced economies, paving the way for many Bilateral trade initiatives, making a dent to multilateralism of the world trade. But the world economy, although not taking off the way it was expected is pushing on nearly a 4% plus growth projections as the Global trade output is touching about 16 Trillion Dollar output and a Boston Consulting Group (BCG) study posits an optimistic target  for about US $20 Trillion Global Trade output by 2020, where even a conservative estimate posits about US$ 17.5-18 Trillion figure.

 

Given the importance of trade finance for trade and economic growth, ASSOCHAM with the support of industry leaders is organizing National Conference “Rethinking Trade Finance for Inclusive Growth” to tackle the issues facing in smooth domestic Trade finance as well as Global prospective. The objective of the conference precisely aims at examining scope at what is transpiring Globally and how India is placed as a policy perspective, is a vis tools, techniques, Instruments, Exchange rate stability from a Global perspective. Equally important will be the domestic market issues and how it can balance the external economy as India is firmly intertwined to world Trade unlike a decade ago where an inward looking India was far more secure to external shocks. It aims at looking in the same way how domestic trade finance is functioning, the gaps that is existing on Supply to demand, the tools, instruments, price discovery and access to Finance in real time. One more aspect we shall try to look deeper is the Scope of Better external economic bon-homie that can foster greater trade exchange in the South Asian economies barring Pakistan and whether we should need to engage more and work proactively by leveraging our friendly relations with all of them especially in view of the fact that China, our Giant neighbor is trying to engage ever more in Bangladesh, Nepal in particular.
