With travel advisories and restrictions continuing to be put in place in affected areas, Canadian exporters will need to find a way to minimize the risks to supply chains and global commodity prices that COVID-19 could have on their business. For more on the effects of COVID-19 we invite you to check out our dedicated COVID-19 resource page from our partners governmental, public & private on our SBX NOW & NXT page

The risks of not getting paid from an international supplier, partner or customers will continue to rise and exporters may need to leverage additional working capital from their banks to help alleviate rising business costs. In our webinar, Coronavirus (COVID-19): Managing the impact on global supply chains, we’ll explain how Canadian exporters can be prepared to take on the risk of doing business in rapidly changing international markets and how EDC can help.

  • How the virus outbreak will impact the global economy and which countries will be most affected
  • How to protect your company against the risk of not getting paid if your suppliers or customers don’t pay
