* The France-headquartered International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and UK-headquartered financial technology company Finastra have announced that Ecuador will be the first recipient of their ICC TRADECOMM finance scheme for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The initiative, which aims to tackle shortfalls in SME funding, will make available US$3.4bn in finance for Ecuadorean SMEs between 2022 and 2026.
