The Trade Facilitation Programme has been running successfully since 1999.
The programme aims to promote foreign trade to, from and amongst the EBRD countries of operations and offers a range of products to facilitate this trade.
Through the programme the EBRD provides guarantees to international confirming banks, taking the political and commercial payment risk of international trade transactions undertaken by banks in the countries of operations (the issuing banks).
We also provide short-term loans to selected banks and factoring companies for on-lending to local exporters, importers and distributors.
The programme can guarantee any genuine trade transaction to, from and among the countries of operations.
The programme strengthens the ability of local banks to provide trade financing and through these banks gives entrepreneurs throughout our countries of operations the support they need to increase their access to their import and export trade.
LA Trade Tech
Has a series of courses on Finance, Budgeting, Credit (repair), Mortgage, Buying and Selling.
All geared to the first-timer, low-income, community-oriented, etc.
Classes started today for Winter. Best bet is to go there now. (Washington and Grand, downtown LA, you can take the Blue Line, or otherwise, plan some extra time to find parking, its the first week of class...)
Do you think the economy will be fixed
I've noticed no job ads in NYC, particularly under finance/business where most of the good jobs used to be posted. I'm currently finishing up school in a "trade" school, but it's for a skill I can actually use that pays more than most college jobs. The thing is, I was considering taking college courses part time and maybe supplement this with at least an associates degree, but maybe a bachelors.
I figure if shit improves by the end of the 4 years then hey, I have a second option if this first one falls apart.
