Trade Facilitation Programme


“Education is a liberating force, and in our age it is also a democratising force, cutting across the barriers of caste and class, smoothing out inequalities imposed by birth and other circumstances.” - Indira Gandhi

Trade Finance e-Learning Programme

The EBRD and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) launched the Trade Finance e-Learning Programme in May 2010, with the aim of helping issuing banks involved in the Trade Facilitation Programme to achieve best international practice in trade finance.

Since the launch 10 years ago, more than 9,000 trade finance specialists from over 400 organisations across the economies where the EBRD invests have taken part in the Trade Finance e-Learning Programme, which covers all of the ICC traditional trade finance rules as well as Incoterms®.

Our Trade Finance e-Learning Programme is generously supported by the EBRD Shareholder Special Fund and the EU Neighbourhood Investment Facility.

For further information on the Trade Finance e-Learning Programme please visit our e-Learning website.

About donor funding for training

EBRD donors support the development of the Trade Facilitation Programme by providing funds for training and advisory services for issuing banks.

With support from Austria, France, Ireland, Taipei China and the UK, we conduct trade finance training that allows issuing banks to increase operational skills and enhance their international trade finance services.

In addition, funds provided by Canada, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Taipei China enable us to hire trade finance specialists to deliver advisory services for banks in Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
