The 2022 GTR Ventures Tradetech Showcase is once again partnering with GTR Asia, the world’s largest finance event, to provide the opportunity for a variety of market players from the corporate, start-up and government sectors to showcase capabilities and outline their business strategies to a captive audience of bankers, peers, corporates, potential investors, regulators and trade policy experts. The Tradetech showcase featured an esteemed panel of experts ready to pose questions and reflect on the viability of the various propositions outlined. The format incorporated a series of presentations, followed by feedback from the expert panel, before reaching final conclusions on the current state of Asian tradetech.
