Logistics And Supply Chain Finance
African exporters have over the years assumed a limited role in international trade and global supply chains. Related to this, the level of intra-Africa trade remains undesirably low despite the growing opportunities through the opening of markets including through the elimination of trade barriers.
The entry into force of the AfCFTA presents an opportunity to African producers to grow their export businesses and indeed be integrated into the continental as well as regional supply chain.
This programme aims at providing participants with skills in key aspects of Supply Chain Finance which is potentially critical to facilitating African Exporters to grow their share in global and intra African trade.
This includes Private Sector Practitioners (inclusive of those from SMEs) involved in the buying and selling of goods; Professionals working in Trade, Export, and Commodity Finance; Import & Export Officers & Managers, Trade Finance Services Officers and Managers; Captains of Business Organisations; Trade Finance and Marketing Professionals.
At the end of the programme, participants will be able to:
- Describe the core concepts and principles of trade finance.
- Indicate need for and use of Supply Chain Finance
- Discuss role of trade finance in managing risk and facilitating international trade.
- Indicate practicalities of the implementation of Supply Chain Finance
