ifo Conference on State Export Credit Guarantees in a Globalized World

  • Conference Call
  • On Feb­ru­ary 14 – 15, 2014, the Ifo Insti­tute and the Ger­man Fed­eral Min­istry of Eco­nom­ics and Tech­nol­ogy will hold a joint con­fer­ence in Munich on the topic of State Export Credit Guar­an­tees in a Glob­al­ized World.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    Global eco­nomic inte­gra­tion has increased impres­sively dur­ing the past few years, dri­ven by inter­na­tional trade and for­eign direct invest­ments. In addi­tion, multi­na­tional enter­prises allo­cate their pro­duc­tion plants ever more across dif­fer­ent coun­tries to exploit cost and spe­cial­iza­tion advan­tages. Today, ris­ing export num­bers are not only a result of grow­ing cross-​border sales of final goods, but stem as well from glob­ally orga­nized pro­duc­tion and value chains. The inter­na­tional exchange of goods con­fronts firms with addi­tional entre­pre­neur­ial chal­lenges, among which the finan­cial clear­ing of sales plays a par­tic­u­lar role.

    The impor­tance of credit for firms’ entre­pre­neur­ial suc­cess has been dra­mat­i­cally illus­trated dur­ing the recent finan­cial cri­sis, in par­tic­u­lar for inter­na­tion­ally active firms.

    • What are the new insights in the trade and finance link­age in light of glob­ally orga­nized value chains?
    • How do entre­pre­neurs, finan­cial insti­tu­tions and gov­ern­ments deal with these new challenges?

    This con­fer­ence will offer aca­d­e­mic researchers and pol­i­cy­mak­ers a plat­form to share their exper­tise in these topics.

    The keynote lec­ture will be deliv­ered by Kalina Manova – Stan­ford University.

    Paper Submission

    Recent research papers deal­ing with trade finance also related to value chain ques­tions are wel­come as sub­mis­sion. Authors of sub­mit­ted papers will be noti­fied no later than 15 Novem­ber 2013 whether their paper has been accepted for the conference.

    Con­fer­ence Fees and Accommodation

    The organ­is­ers will pro­vide accom­mo­da­tion and reim­burse econ­omy travel costs for par­tic­i­pants with accepted papers. Fur­ther ques­tions regard­ing the organ­i­sa­tion and sci­en­tific con­tent of the con­fer­ence should be addressed to the con­fer­ence organ­iser Erdal Yal­cin.
