The Digitalisation Debate: How Are New Technologies Impacting Trade Credit?
Technology in trade credit is not so much a question of if, more a question of when. The answer to that seems to be ‘very soon, if not now’ so instead this panel will look at the how. Much talk of a blockchain revolution and Artificial Intelligence has left many wondering how exactly this will impact the industry. So this panel will debate:
What are the current tools available for trade?
What impact could existing technologies have?
What are the obstacles to implementation?
What type of evolution are we going to see?
