    This year – 2016 – has been special for us as we celebrated our silver jubilee. It has also been a successful year as we have continued to support the TFP’s partner banks in some of the most innovative and complex transactions. We hosted a record number of colleagues at our oversubscribed annual trade finance events in London and Frankfurt, where our colleagues from Cyprus, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia took to the stage to introduce their markets to key players in the trade finance sector. The TFP team facilitated open dialogue for new, exciting and dynamic cooperation for business and training.
