Trade Digitization Webinar Series
2nd June 2020, 10am EDT / 3PM BST / 4PM CEST / 6PM GST / 10PM SGT
Paper is the Achilles heel of trade finance. Over the past few years, blockchain and distributed ledger platforms have been positioned as the potential solution for flatter, smarter and more connected global trade and commerce. But, why hasn’t adoption by the industry taken off yet?
Against the backdrop of the imminent publication of BAFT’s DLPC Best Practices and execution of live trade finance transactions leveraging the DLPC, join us to learn how the DLPC addresses multiple challenges involved in brining trade finance into the digital age.
Co-hosted by Trade Finance Global (TFG), this webinar will address:
- What is the BAFT’s DLPC and how does it work technically and functionally
- Why the documentary trade and supply chain finance industry needs the DLPC
- BAFT’s newly released DLPC Best Business Practices
- Live case studies in which banks are utilizing DLPC for trade finance payment commitments
