This Digital Thing Does Not Have to Be So Hard - Online Presentations Under UCP 600
While there are a lot of new ideas for changing trade and digitizing trade documentation, including BPOs e-BLs and even e-UCP transactions, most of the benefits of these new technologies can be achieved with existing letter of credit rules and documents. Elizabeth Payment of Trade Technologies presents two Fotrune 500 case studies describing how major exporters are presenting original UCP 600 letter of credit documents that are examined in the US to issuing banks in China within a day or a few days after shipment without international courier expense or delay. Yes -- including the original ocean transport document.

BAFT offers three trade finance workshops throughout the year in the United States – Southeast in Florida, New York in New York City, and West Coast in Los Angeles. With the workshops’ popularity and requests from BAFT members to offer additional workshops, we’ve expanded our offering outside the United States with a workshop series in three different cities in India, a workshop in Toronto, Canada and soon we will introduce a workshop in Indonesia.

The Global Trade Finance Workshops are led by trade-operations experts and purposely designed to be smaller in size to encourage an interactive and engaging workshop. Program for each workshop typically includes case studies and single-issue questions about the industry’s most challenging topics, plus the very popular mock court!
