About The Summit

Enabling the Kingdom's vision for a better future

Facilitation of trade has always been an integral part of GCC's economy, especially the Kingdom, as its strategic location between Asia, Europe and Africa offers optimum advantages for international trade. Global trade market is evolving continuously, and appropriate trade related products, and solutions evolved with it, notably in the recent times.

Keeping this mind, and to bridge this gap between the CFOs and the financial institutions, we initiated the Saudi Trade Finance summit in 2013 which over the years has earned a firm reputation and a strong foothold as the Kingdom's largest and most influential trade finance gathering that brings together top CFOs in the Kingdom along with key stakeholders involved including Government and Regulatory Authorities, Financial Institutions, Technology providers, Trade Credit Insurers, Consulting and Advisory firms, Supply Chain Financers and Alternate Financiers to discuss financial regulations, strategies and trends shaping the Kingdom's economy.

The first three editions of the summit took place in the capital city of Riyadh successfully followed by the fourth edition in the commercial city of Jeddah and the fifth edition of the summit took place at the export hub – Al Khobar for the first time with tremendous success. In line with Saudi's Vision 2030, the 6th edition of the summit vows to enable thought provoking trade finance conversations through its informative conference sessions that is relevant to the current situation and emphasize on the diversification of the economy to help realizing the role of financial institutions and corporates in achieving the Kingdom’s Vision.
