ECGC – D&B hosts Export Risk Management Conclave 2013 -14 in Ludhiana


Ludhiana, February 18, 2014: Dun & Bradstreet, the world’s leading provider of global business information, knowledge and insight, in association with the Export Credit Guarantee Corporation of India Ltd (ECGC) organised the sixth conference under the series ‘ECGC – D&B Export Risk Management Conclave 2013 - 14’, designed to discuss risks faced by various stakeholders in the export value chain across the country and how these can be mitigated.
The conclave theme, ‘Managing Risk in Volatile Times’ provided insights on risk mitigation issues and techniques in critical areas of exports related to insurance, foreign exchange fluctuation, supply chain management and geo-political movements. The event witnessed industry experts sharing their experiences and perspective about the current and future state of the export landscape.
Delivering the welcome address,  Kaushal Sampat, President & CEO – India, Dun & Bradstreet said, “India has taken significant steps to deepen integration with the global economy over the last two decades, especially in the area of trade. From a share of mere 0.4% in global merchandise exports and a ranking of 45 in 1980, India has moved up to 19th rank and holds 1.6% share in global merchandise exports in 2012. Exporters are being confronted with increasingly volatile and complex environment. The scope of risks they face is broader, has a deeper impact and is much quicker to materialize. In such a scenario, the ability of an organisation to take risks and manage them well has emerged as a major competitive advantage.”
 “The objective of the ECGC-D&B Export Risk Management Conclave therefore is to reach out to exporters across the country and discuss the risks that they face and how these can be mitigated. Equally important, the Conclave would discuss how exporters can leverage the opportunities ahead, in terms of new markets, products, services, financing avenues, supply chains etc.”, he added.
Speaking at the conclave, Geetha Muralidhar, Executive Director, ECGC of India Limited said, “Amongst various risks in an export transaction, restrictive and anti-dumping measures by the importing country in the form of Non-Tariff Barriers are also of concern.”//ludhiana news online, ludhiana news in English, ludhiana news, ludhiana current news, ludhiana news live, Ludhiana breaking news, Ludhiana headlines, Ludhiana latest news, punjab news, india news, punjab news live, punjab news online, punjab news, punjab news headlines, punjab breaking news, india news, punjab news,
