WTO raises concern over falling trade finance

I had pointed WTO is concerned that trade finance would be imacted by ongoing trade crisis. WTO in a meeting stressed on the problem and provided some stas as well:

  • The main one is the shortage of liquidity to finance trade credits. The market currently estimates the liquidity gap in trade finance at about $25 billion.
  • The second is a general re-assessment of the risks caused by the financial crisis and by the slowing down of the world economy.
  • These problems are being felt most acutely by traders and banks in the emerging market economies

Further Pascal Lamy has warned the situation is likely to worsen and impact the world trade.
