The Arkansas District Export Council will be conducting a new seminar, focusing on export finance and risk mitigation, in April.
This four-part seminar will be held April 7-8 and April 14-15, from 9-10 a.m. each day.
During the seminar, subject matter experts will discuss a wide range of topics, including Small Business Administration (SBA) export programs, EXIM Bank services, international financial products and trade services, currency risk management, and export credit insurance.
In the April 7 session, participants will learn about the SBA export programs, including Export Working Capital and STEP Grants, as well as about the Export-Import Bank of the United States, and the services they provide to reduce the risk of nonpayment from international buyers.
The second session on April 8 will focus on international financial products, including import and export letters of credit, import and export documentary collections, and foreign wire transfers.
Participants will focus on managing currency risks in the third session, held on April 14. The fourth session, held on April 15, will focus on trade credit services, bank financing and insurance needed to mitigate risks in international transactions.
