Supporting corporates achieving their optimisation goals, SWIFT Corporate Forum was held in Dubai on 4 March this year. Many attendees took part in the payments ecosystem including treasurers, members of the corporate finance departments and various other actors were present in the event to share experiences with experts attending the forum and other professionals in the industry.
