Training Objective
International Trade calls for proper understanding and in depth knowledge of various technical aspects including Documentary Credit Operations. And because of the worldwide interrelationships in the field of International Trade, it frequently happens that buyers and sellers enter into contracts under which, for one reason or other, neither prepayments nor supply of the goods on a credit basis are possible. Since the early years of modern world trade, banks have been contributing towards the settlement of payments. But
