The techUK podcast - Digitisation of trade: Enabling more companies to participate in global trade
The international digital trade ecosystem is witnessing a radical transformation, enabling industry to dramatically cut the cost, remove unnecessary bureaucracy, and improve transparency and efficiency. Digital solutions open up a range of new opportunities for businesses looking to trade across borders. Digitisation can reduce the cost, complexity of doing business across borders and the risk of fraud, enabling more companies to participate in global trade.
In this podcast we discuss why paper-based trade does not work, how technology can facilitate paperless trading and improve the efficiency of supply chains. We will also explore challenges to the adoption of digital solutions in international trade and digitisation of trade documents.
We have a brilliant lineup of guests including: Adam Prince, VP Product Management at Sage and Vice-Chair of techUK’s Tarde Working Group; Parm Sangha, EMEA Blockchain Practice Leader at IBM; Shenali Jashani, Senior Business Consultant – Customs & International Trade at Fujitsu.
