17 November 2020 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm GMT

Documentary Letters of Credit are a preferred method of payment in international trade, and commonly used worldwide. Governed by ICC UCP600 Rules, a Letter of Credit is the safest way of ensuring exporters get paid and importers receive their goods on time.
