Trade finance

On 20 June 2018, the UK Export Finance agency (UKEF) published the list of beneficiaries of trade finance transactions for the year 2017/2018.

One of these beneficiaries was the Eastern & Southern African Trade Development Bank, which was offered a buyer credit of a total value of GBP 41,902,448 (USD 55,350,445). The buyer credit finances the export of an Airbus aircraft to Mauritius from Airbus SAS.

Given that UKEF does not provide the exact date that the trade finance deal was signed, the most conservative inception date, i.e. the 20 June 2018, 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.
