Therefore, even now there is a growing demand for trade finance services which allow the volume of current assets to be increased.
Rietumu Bank has been specialising in this segment for over 20 years and is one of the few European banks, which successfully finance foreign trade in Russia and other CIS countries, including of the Black Sea Region, in particular the trade of agricultural products both in the Baltic and the Black Sea Region. Participation in this authoritative forum will again allow us to present our services and opportunities to the biggest players on this market, the potential of which we value as very high.”
