- The Government has today announced Trade Credit Insurance will receive up to £10 billion of government guarantees.
- The Trade Credit Reinsurance scheme, which has been agreed following extensive discussions with the insurance sector, will see the vast majority of Trade Credit Insurance coverage maintained across the UK.
