In partnership with SECO, ABAC, IFC and the State Bank of Vietnam are organizing the Fourth Conference on Supply Chain Finance in Asia Pacific. This conference will focus on how to develop a Supply Chain Finance (SCF) market in emerging economies. The Cebu Action Plan calls for reforms to the secured transactions framework and the development of a movable asset finance market to improve access to finance by SMEs, Agribusiness operators and traders, among other groups. Supply Chain Finance is a main part of the larger movable asset finance market and is a useful way to increase business lending.

Taking stock of latest reforms and developments in the SCF industry across the Region, the event will also discuss Agri Supply Chain Finance, support services for SCF, and the opportunities and challenges in developing the Vietnamese and other similar markets in APEC. About 200 participants are expected, including policy-makers, financial regulators, lending institutions, SCF support services providers, lead firms and their SME suppliers and distributors.
