New Blockchain for Trade & Connectivity Network will assure reliable supply chains and strengthen trust in Singapore as a global trading hub

GeTS continues to support the industry's commitment to strengthen trade and connectivity linkages. We are pleased to share that we are among the six partners to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) and Enterprise Singapore (ESG) during the Singapore Week of Innovation and TeCHnology (SWITCH) today. The MOU aims to create, trial and lead the implementation of the Blockchain for Trade & Connectivity (BTC) Network - a unifying platform that allows blockchain and other technologies to operate together. We will explore the possibility of expanding our Open Trade Blockchain (OTB) use cases to interoperate with BTC Network. GeTS’ OTB is built for the trade ecosystem communities for co-creation to uncover meaningful use cases. Focused on creating a trusted digital environment, we are a permissioned blockchain infrastructure network with trusted nodes hosted by whitelisted global trade organizations such as accredited trade compliance service providers.
