TDB wins 2 GTR leaders in Trade Awards


Trade and Development Bank (TDB) is awarded Global Trade Review’s (GTR) Leaders in Trade Awards as ‘Best Trade Finance Bank in Kenya’ and ‘Best Trade Finance Bank in Ethiopia’ for the year 2020.
Nairobi being TDB’s operational hub, the ‘Best Trade Finance Bank in Kenya’ award recognizes not only the Bank’s work in Kenya, but also the efforts it has been deploying across its various member states. Similarly, the ‘Best Trade Finance Bank in Ethiopia’ award is a tribute to TDB’s far-reaching bespoke trade finance solutions which have enabled the country to access forex liquidity, enhance its productivity levels in agriculture, support employment, ensure food security and more.
Michael Awori, TDB’s Chief Operating Officer, commented that “over the past few years, we have enriched our trade finance strategy, diversified our suite of products and services, and sharpened our response to the needs of the region we serve. We have no doubt made a pronounced mark in addressing the trade finance gap in the region, mitigating critical fuel shortages, securing the sourcing of strategic commodities, facilitating greater intra and inter-Africa trade and regional integration, and ultimately, moving the sustainable economic development needle in the region”.
