International Conference of Supply Chain Finance May 17-18, 2014 Nanjing, China Home Traditionally the attention of financial managers of companies was focused on making profits for the stockholders of the firm and maximizing the value of the company. A new trend in today’s business world is that the traditional vertical single-firm mass production model has been gradually replaced by supply chain production model. To ensure the success of supply chain production, the relationship between buyers and suppliers are changed from zero sum to mutual benefit. Many financial managers of companies have come to realize the importance of improving the financial efficiency of the supply chain as whole. Therefore topics of supply chain finance have attracted a lot of attentions from both researchers and practitioners. This conference intends to provide a platform for those who are interested in this topic to share their ideas.
