Trade finance will remain an important component of international financial flows.
Historically trade finance has tended to be highly vulnerable in times of crises. The global financial crisis in 2008-2009 and particularly the disproportionate drop in trade push the interest of the economists to the issues of trade finance. The market of trade finance proved to be vulnerable to financial shocks. The lower access to secure, proper and cost-effective trade financing can stop the potential for trade to function as a vector of economic growth.
The COVID-19 crisis is additionally sharpening the barriers in trade finance and in a number of strategic and important directions from the economic development. The uncertainties as a result from the pandemic provoke greater demand for trade finance products. It is supposed that the effects will be stronger than the consequences following the global financial crisis due to the extensive and deep economic effects of COVID-19.
