Title: GTR Europe Trade & Export Finance Conference 2017

Paris, France, June 21 Recognised as a key market gathering for trade and export finance specialists,
financiers and regional business heads, this years GTR Europe Trade & Export Finance Conference
2017 will take place in Paris.

This one-day event features sessions addressed by and for corporates, two afternoon streams one

and multiple networking breaks allowing attendees to expand their contact base and gain valuable

The significance of trade within Europe has of course been at the forefront of the global news agenda
over the last year, with discussions over Brexit and the EU, elections throughout the continent and
concerns over protectionism from further afield all posing challenges for trading companies, exporters
