Event Details

International trade is the driving force of the world economy, providing goods and services across borders to foster wealth and prosperity throughout the globe.

Mitigating supply chain disruption, ensuring business continuity, and assurance of price and service are vital to safeguarding long-term business viability and remaining competitive and profitable. Learn how to do so from Regions Bank Senior Vice President of the Global Trade Finance Group Thomas Matthias, U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Export Finance Manager David Leonard, and U.S. Export-Import Bank Regional Director Susan Kintanar.
