Event - 27 November 2019

Hawksford is organising a seminar with Bank of Shanghai

International payments play an instrumental role in today’s global economy and make cross-border trade and investment easy.

According to McKinsey & Company, B2B cross-border transactions generated $125 billion in revenues in 2018. A lot of multinational companies in China need cross-border transactions daily not only for B2B purposes but also for B2C and C2C. There are three remarkable issues: currency conversion, time-to-pay, and transparency of payment. Entrepreneurs and their executive teams have to understand the local regulatory requirements, filing procedures and emerging technologies. 

Hawksford is pleased to partner with Bank of Shanghai, to present a seminar on cross-border payments. The initiative aims to help global companies from Asia and Europe to cope with the challenges of connecting payments, operation of clearance system with international payment institutions and cooperation with e-commerce platforms.
