Trade finance

On 19 July 2017, the UK Export Finance agency (UKEF) published the list of beneficiaries of trade finance transactions for the year 2016/2017.

One of these beneficiaries was the Omani Ministry of Defence, which was offered a buyer credit of a total value of GBP 1,709,583,352 (USD 2,221,531,687). The buyer credit finances the export of a Typhoon and Hawk aircraft to Oman from BAE Systems.

Given that UKEF does not provide the exact date that the trade finance deal was signed, the most conservative inception date, i.e. the 30 June 2017, was set as the inception date.

The GTA includes various financial incentives that are likely to affect the restructuring and performance of firms facing international competition, whether from imports, in export markets, and from foreign subsidiaries.
