TXF Asia 2020: Export, Agency & Project Finance
Nov 17 - Nov 18, 2020
Sofitel Sentosa Resort and Spa, Singapore
Welcome back to the business-card-exchanging, knowledge-sharing and deal-closing world of TXF Asia 2020.
This year’s TXF Asia Export, Agency & Project finance will be a Virtual + event, offering you the chance to join physically or virtually depending on what feels safe for each individual. And rest assure we will be following strict and through safety measures for all physical attendees.
The physical gathering, now based in Singapore, and virtual arm of the event are set to bring together local exporters, borrowers, developers, banks, insurers, ECAs, legal partners and government institutions to meet future business partners. With both parts of the event complimenting each other and giving you access to a broader, more diverse audience than ever before.
Export finance, particularly with ECA involvement, is a countercyclical market. Although we’ve seen low volumes as a result of the coronavirus crisis, ECAs and DFIs have been upping their support for business - during the GFC of 2008, ECAs stepped up to the plate in a big way. Although today’s is a very different type of crisis, will we see the same again?
Coronavirus may be dominating our thoughts at the moment, but it’s not the only pressure the market faces. Increased tensions between the US and China are causing us to re-think supply chains, allowing space for countries such as Vietnam and Indonesia to fill the gaps.
Sustainability is no longer a buzzword - in fact, major banks are pledging as much as $200 billion in sustainability-linked financing by 2025. This means we’ll have to reshape what projects can be viewed as sustainable - although a lucrative market, wind farms alone ain’t going to cut it any more. Instead, we need to look at diversifying our sustainable portfolio of projects, and embed ESGs into the fabric of our financing models.
Don’t miss out on the chance to join us, be it virtually or in person, on November 17th & 18th, as we assess this confusing, challenging and unpredictable year in Asian export finance. Find out how you and you team can put your best foot forward not only as the best informed but connected too.
