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.

After three successful editions in the capital city of Riyadh and last year's edition at the commercial city of Jeddah being a tremendous success, this year, for the first time, the summit moves to the Country's industrial hub – Al-Khobar in the eastern province. In line with Saudi's Vision 2030, this year's summit vows to enable thought provoking trade finance conversations through its informative conference sessions that is relevant to the current situation that emphasizes on the diversification of the economy and helps realizing the role of financial institutions and corporates in the vision of the Kingdom to achieve sustainable growth.
