Consistent with its commitment to bring the MENA region and Africa closer through structured trade finance solutions, The Access Bank UK DIFC Branch sponsored GTR MENA Trade and Export Week 2018, which took place at Jumeirah Emirates Towers in Dubai from 19th to 22nd February 2018.
Showcasing its products and services at the event, The Access Bank UK DIFC Branch seized the opportunity to position itself as ‘Africa’s Gateway to the World’ through this well-established, comprehensive market gathering of the MENA region’s trade experts, bankers, government bodies and corporates of all sizes. The Access Bank UK DIFC Branch was also able to interact with a large number of movers and shakers in the industry along with hundreds of companies engaged in the international trade, and use the forum to share their knowledge about the latest trade, export and infrastructure financing tools and opportunities.
Commenting on their involvement, Jamie Simmonds, Chief Executive Officer at The Access Bank UK said, “The Access Bank UK DIFC Branch is pleased to return to the GTR MENA Trade and Export Week 2018 with new prospects and optimism for trade development between the MENA region and Africa. We value this year’s GTR event as it surveys key issues affecting our industry sector while being attentive to the recent global developments. Attending and participating in such an event is a valuable experience that empowers us too, and thus provides useful insights to our customers. We at The Access Bank UK are dedicated to building a long-lasting relationship with our customers, and as a result, constantly seeking opportunities to make the process simple yet effective.”
