One of the world’s pressing challenges and opportunities is realising the full benefits of digital trade – for everyone, everywhere. COVID-19 highlighted the fragility of global trade’s reliance on paper-based processes and the pandemic has added urgency to the need for a resilient rebuild of digitisation of the global trade ecosystem. Since its inception five years ago, Hyperledger technologies have played a key role towards achieving this goal.
In this panel, you will hear from the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) on its major new initiative to establish a globally harmonised, digitised trade environment. Hyperledger members and blockchain leaders will discuss the development and state of blockchain solutions for trade and trade finance today. The panel will examine issues including:
– the progress, pitfalls and opportunities companies and consortiums working on blockchain for trade and trade finance are facing – which are the platforms to watch – progress in interoperability and identity – regulatory developments and challenges – how to monetise on a blockchain trade finance platform – how small and medium sized enterprises can take part – democratising access to global markets
