A foreign trade is also known as international trade. It is the exchange of capital, goods and services between different nations. It has been in the history even before the civilization. It also has notable effect on economic, social, and political areas of every country. Industrialization, advanced transportation, globalization, multinational corporations, and outsourcing are all having a major impact on the international trade system. Increasing international trade is crucial to the continuance of globalization. International trade is a major source of economic revenue for any nation that is considered a world power. Without international trade, nations would be limited to the goods and services produced within their own borders. According to a web-based encyclopedia
A letter of credit is a document issued mostly by a financial institution which usually provides an irrevocable payment undertaking (it can also be revocable, confirmed, unconfirmed, transferable or others e.g. back to back: revolving but is most commonly irrevocable/confirmed) to a beneficiary against complying documents as stated in the credit. Letter of Credit is abbreviated as a LC or L/C, and often is referred to as a documentary credit, abbreviated as DC or D/C, documentary letter credit or simply as credit (as in the UCP 500 and UCP 600). Once the beneficiary or presenting bank acting on its behalf, makes a presenting to the issuing bank or confirming bank if any, within the expiry date of the LC, comprising documents complying with the terms and conditions of the LC, the applicable UCP and international standard banking practice, the issuing bank or confirming bank if any, is obliged to honor irrespective of any instructions from the applicant to the contrary. In other words, the obligation to honor (usually payment) is shifted from the applicant to the issuing bank or confirming bank if any. Non –banks can also issue letters of credit however parties must balance potential risks. Mr. Tony
