OPEN FORUM/Executive Exchange
For more than 50 years, FCIB has been hosting its signature Open Forum session during conferences and summits to promote and encourage the open exchange of information and sharing of expertise. This year our Open Forum panel, drawn from FCIB’s global membership, will examine issues in two segments:
- Country Risk: Credit professionals drawn from different industries will take a look at issues across various countries in Europe, Latin America, China, Middle East, Africa and Asia.
- General issues affecting credit managers across different practice areas: Credit risk, shared service centres, technology platforms, compliance, OTC and many more!
Join us as we examine common problems affecting international credit managers in the dynamic global world of trade credit, and learn from others when dealing with complex issues.
