About the product

The development of foreign trade in the transition economies depends largely on the availability of competitive exports and convertible currency funds for imports. This publication addresses practical issues for private companies of attracting and managing foreign-trade finance in transition economies. It discusses the issues of risk identification and assessment, appropriate payment and credit arrangements in transition economies, the role of banks and export-risk insurers in facilitating the funding of foreign trade, monitoring and management of the exporter's financial-risk exposure and organization of the trade-finance and international credit-management functions in an exporting company.
