Trade Finance in Benghazi
On April 21st, 2009 Sahara Bank organised in Benghazi a conference on its Trade Finance offer, in cooperation with the local Chamber of Commerce.
Benghazi is the second industrial and commercial center of Libya after Tripoli.
Nearly 100 customers and prospects participated to this event as well as the local media (press and television). This conference follows the conference organised in Tripoli in April 2008 on the same topic.
Many questions were asked by the participants to the various speakers from Sahara Bank and BNP Paribas - Retail Banking in Maghreb and Global Trade Solutions.
This initiative is a new step in the action led by Sahara bank and GTS to bring to the local customers the know-how and products of the Group related to Trade Finance. The need expressed by the participants to have a local Trade Center in Benghazi was taken into consideration. This project is now a part of the action plan of the executive management and Trade Center of the Sahara Bank.
