ICC announce postponement of the ICC Banking Commission Technical Meeting scheduled to be held in Limassol, Cyprus on 26-29 October 2020

25/06/2020

The ICC released the following on 25 June 2020:

“Due to the ongoing global health crisis, the Banking Commission leadership and ICC Secretariat  in close consultation with ICC Cyprus has to inform you that the ICC Banking Commission Technical Meeting in Limassol originally scheduled on 26-20 October 2020 will be postponed.

This decision was made to:

•    Ensure the health and safety of our employees, delegates, speakers and partners, which is our number one priority. 

•    Anticipate that many of you will not be in a position to travel due to ongoing restrictive measures. The Banking Commission events have always been an inclusive gathering of the trade and trade finance network. It is through this diversity and scope that our events have become the success they are today. That is why we want to give banks and the trade finance community the necessary time they need to adjust and recover.  

We will work closely with the Chairs of the various Workgroups and Task Force to carry on with the programme of the ICC Banking Commission on a virtual basis. We will be in touch with you all once relevant information will be made available.    

We look forward to seeing you all in Dubai for our Annual Meeting in 2021.”
