TXF Asia Export, Agency & Project Finance 2021
Welcome back to the LinkedIn-swapping, knowledge-sharing and deal-closing world of TXF Asia virtual 2021.
This year’s TXF Asia Export, Agency & Project finance will be returning to Singapore and rest assured we will be following strict and through safety measures for all attendees.
The physical gathering, now based in Singapore, is set to bring together local exporters, borrowers, developers, banks, insurers, ECAs, law firms and government institutions to meet future business partners.
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 re-think which 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 embedding ESGs into the fabric of our financing models.
Don’t miss out on the chance to join us, as we assess this crucial year in Asian export finance and the challenges we are facing. Find out how you and you team can put your best foot forward not only as the best informed but connected too.
