日本金融及科技巨头联合试验区块链跨境贸易应用

近日,日本多家金融界及科技业巨头联合宣布了一项测试计划,旨在验证区块链技术在改善跨境贸易操作方面的可用程度。这些企业已经同意本月开始示范测试。

参与公司包括三井住友金融集团(Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group)、三井住友银行(Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation)、日本综合研究所 (The Japan Research Institute)、三井物产株式会社(Mitsui & Co.)、商船三井(Mitsui O.S.K. Lines)、三井住友保险公司(Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Company)以及IBM日本(IBM Japan)等等。

在本次测试中,参与公司将使用基于区块链的应用程序输入真实交易的信息,这款应用程序可以实现文件的数字化、在参与者间记录并共享文件。

据)了解,测试将对比基于区块链的系统和现有流程之间的差异,验证该技术能否有效提高安全性、缩短跨境贸易结算所需时间、减少相关文件之间的矛盾、降低管理成本。除此之外,这次测试还会研究区块链商业化的潜力,并评估其在跨境贸易操作中的可行性。

 

 

Japanese firms Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) and NTT Data announced yesterday the launch of a blockchain proof-of-concept aimed to foster trade between Singapore and Japan.

With participation from Singapore's National Trade Platform (NTP), the cross-border pilot is being designed to ease international trade flows in a "secure and transparent" way by connecting digital platforms in the two countries using blockchain.

According to a press release, the collaboration will see the partners utilize an API that will connect an NTT Data-developed prototype trade system with the NTP, as well as collaborate on tackling technical issues in cross-border trade.

Toshi Fujiwara, NTT DATA's director and executive vice president stated:

"It is significantly valuable not only for NTT Data but also trade-related industries in Japan, to verify technical issues, find their solutions and apply standardization."

Notably, MUFG and NTT Data are no strangers to blockchain technology.

NTT launched a new consortium this August in a move to investigate use cases for blockchain technology. The initiative includes 13 major companies, including MUFG, from sectors such as banking, insurance, exports and imports.

MUFG has instigated a number of projects involving the tech, including most recently cross-border payment services in collaboration with Standard Chartered.
