Course Highlights:

Considering the national objective of a USD 5 trillion economy by 2025, Indian banks need to mobilize their manpower to provide Trade Finance on a much higher plateau than at present in order to bridge the demand supply gap. The fact that majority of the work force has less than five years of experience or left over service, banks are experiencing huge knowledge gaps. Considering FEMA’s ever-changing scenario as well as other compliance concerns, desk officers should be capable of delivering the desired results to all stakeholders. In this direction, SIFL is providing a platform for training and improving the skill sets of bank employees.
