The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) on Thursday hosted a seminar entitled Management of Letter of Credit Operations – the Exporters and Importers Perspective, aimed to bring a new dimension to trade finance by providing a comprehensive overview of obligations and challenges faced by the parties using documentary letters of credit.
