05/05/2021

On 30 March 2021, the World Trade Organization (WTO), Trade Finance Global (TFG) and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) launched their latest publication ‘Accelerating trade digitalization to support MSME financing’.

This new publication looks into the benefits and deployment challenges of eight prominent technologies that have the potential to disrupt the international trade landscape and to facilitate MSME financing. The technologies, which include cloud computing, optical character recognition (OCR), internet of things (IoT), application programming interface (API), distributed ledger technology (DLT), big data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and quantum computing, have been individually identified as either lucrative challenges, rapid rewards, small wins, or downstream ambitions on the basis of interviews with 34 industry experts and 105 survey responses.
