IBF Futureskills Connect with SCS: Digitalisation of Trade finance in the age of 5G

23 Feb 2021

Since IBM and Maersk first announced the completion of an end-to-end digitalized supply chain model using blockchain technology in 2017, Financial institutions have worked closely with blockchain platforms to unlock the potential of Blockchain technology for trade finance in the form of smart contracts to reduce operational complexity and transaction costs. 

Last year, Standard Chartered and DBS Bank Ltd, with the support of 12 other banks, announced the digital Trade Finance Registry (TFR). a project that will use blockchain technology to register trade finance transactions. The project will be implemented first in Singapore before expanding globally to cover major trade corridors at a later stage.

What are some of the key issues and challenges industry players should consider as we look at the application of blockchain technology in trade finance. How will these change with the introduction of 5G in the region? Join us for this insightful webinar to  find out.
