The Business Forum shall become a platform for the Romanian financial industry to discuss relevant topic.
For the first event, we have chosen the “payments and liquidity management” topics, which especially due to the crisis have become increasingly important topics: how can ensure all and real-time cash visibility for all your accounts, how can you spot and in-time tackle liquidity risk, how can you optimise supply chain flows, how can the Corporate to Bank communication be more efficient.
The event is addressed to the management and specialists from the operations divisions, payments and settlement departments, treasury departments of the credit institutions, as well as to treasury departments of the corporates.
