COURSE OVERVIEW

The continuous development and improvement of innovative technologies  generate new channels for communication, for commerce, and commercial transactions. Trade commerce (i.e., import-export) documents are usually stacked in piles of paper and exchanged manually, or, in the best cases, via scanned PDFs, emailed or faxed. Digital transformation is  slowly moving trade documents (e.g., bills of lading and letters of credit) from the complicated manual exchange into all electronic communication. 

However, they are not always accessible to all of the parties involved in the trade process. Each party holds its own "version of the truth", and lack of trust looms over all the trade participants.

This course is specifically designed to guide you through the various aspects of enterprise blockchain's revolutionary trade finance platforms. You will learn how blockchain enables trade participants to replace the paper-intensive exchange, and utilize new digital equivalents to activate working capital finance schemes. This course will provide you with the tools to positively impact the world of trade finance, and in particular, trade operations.
