Enigio is a proud sponsor of Global Trade Review’s (GTR) yearly conference GTR Nordics 2022, which takes place on November 16th in Stockholm.
The theme is “Navigating turbulent times for Nordic trade”. Bringing together a host of financing experts and innovators to plot a path for Nordic industry and commerce and pinpoint emerging business opportunities as the global economy sets sights on sustainable post-pandemic growth.
Enigio’s CEO Patrik Zekkar will among other things be sharing why MLETR and the technical solution trace:original are such a perfect fit in the session:
Building the e-doc ecosystem: A marathon, not a sprint
Singapore adopted the Model Law on Electronic Transferable Records (MLETR) in 2021, granting electronic trade documents the same legal standing as their paper-based counterparts, with MLETR subsequently championed by G7 Ministers. Digital trade in the US took a significant step in 2022 with amendments to the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), providing rules for electronic negotiable instruments. Similar efforts are underway in key trade markets from LatAm to China: regulatory barriers to digital trade are falling.
This panel of trade digitisation experts will explore the key drivers building momentum behind the adoption of trade e-docs, highlighting landmark transactions involving instruments including the promissory note and bill of lading, and the innovations and ecosystem developments promoting the use of e-docs for trade financing. Further debate will explore the interoperability challenges and regulatory risks that remain, and prospects for standardisation provided by the development of legal frameworks:
What will a fully developed e-doc ecosystem look like, and where are new opportunities for trade financing emerging in the meantime?
