Nagpur: Nag Vidarbha Chamber of Commerce in association with ECGC, Government of India Enterprise organized a Seminar on Risk Management in Export Transactions on 19th September 2015, at the Meeting Hall of NVCC with a view to create awareness regarding the various products and benefits provided by ECGC.
