UK Export Finance (UKEF) is hosting the second annual UK Trade & Export Finance Forum to mark its centenary on 5 June. Join over 600 leaders in business and finance to celebrate 100 years of UKEF’s innovative support for exports, as well as exploring the continued role of export credits.

The world of international trade is developing fast, with changing political, regulatory and technological landscapes. For 100 years, since UKEF was established in 1919 as the world’s first export credit agency (ECA), ECAs have played a critical role making international trade happen.

This event will explore trends in international trade, as well as the latest developments in the field of export credit agencies, and the UK Government’s Export Strategy, which puts export finance at its heart, with a commitment ensuring no viable UK export fails for lack of finance or insurance.

On the day, you will discuss the big issues of the day in a range of interactive sessions, including debates, case studies, and workshop-style Q&A sessions.
