Expanding international business offers fantastic business opportunities for all-including fraudsters. Many times the default/fraud succeeds because of the unawareness of parties involved in the trade transaction. This unawareness can be on account of inherent weakness in a document involved in the transaction or may be due to myths related to a specific payment system as proposed by the counter party . For example, many exporters consider a letter of credit as a police to the commercial transaction which is not true .
It is therefore of ultimate importance for banks , traders and all other parties to be aware of associated risks, pitfalls and the red flags etc while handling the international trade transactions.
FIEO in association with JIMS, Rohini is organizing a one day workshop to impart knowledge on all dimensions of a trade transaction so as to be able to take necessary preventive precautions. Extensive coverage will be given on technical aspects of trade transactions, alternative possibilities , applicable rules , inherent strength or weakness of a particular type of document etc. The various topics covered in the workshop will be highlighted through case studies. It also covers further the legal and practical aspects; in particular the means of asset recovery post-fraud will be dealt with.
The workshop was led by Dr.(Prof.) Ashok Bhagat Ex. Head Sales – Trade&VP Societe Generale, ICC India nominee for ICC Banking Commission Paris –India Chapter & Ex-Officio Member ICC INDIA Executive Committee and currently Dean -IB , JIMS, Rohini. Delhi.
