28 June 2019: The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Blockchain development company Perlin and the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry have signed an exclusive partnership for the distribution of innovative blockchain products developed under the newly established Centre of Future Trade based in Singapore.
The Centre of Future Trade, established by ICC and Perlin with the support of Enterprise Singapore, has now signed a major new distribution partner for its technology products with the Dubai Chamber now having exclusive rights to market and distribute innovative blockchain solutions, developed by ICC and Perlin, in the Middle East and Africa.
“ICC is committed to helping business chambers and enterprises all over the world to access best-in-class technology in an ever-changing and dynamic landscape for global trade,” said ICC Secretary General John W.H. Denton AO. “With the highly respected Dubai Chamber helping to grow awareness for the pioneering technology developed by our Centre of Future Trade, we expect substantial industry adoption in their regions of influence.”
Similar to Singapore, Dubai is a major global hub for business and international trade, with a hugely diverse range of commodities and industries moving through the region. With prime strategic access to thriving markets throughout the Middle East and Africa, the Dubai Chamber is strongly positioned to help ICC and Perlin deploy commercial blockchain pilots.
“We are extremely excited to be working closely with ICC and Perlin to develop and deploy leading-edge blockchain solutions to support our very extensive base of members and regional partners to be at the forefront of trade innovation,” said Khalil Haddad, Director of Strategy at the Dubai Chamber.
With recent global launch events in Paris and Rio de Janeiro and more to come, ICC continues to actively support Perlin in spreading awareness and adoption for its blockchain across ICC’s 45 million members in over 100 countries. The overarching goals of the initiatives for blockchain pilots include digital innovation for trade, greatly enhanced efficiencies and more sustainable industries.
“Working with ICC, Singapore Government and extremely active business organisations like the Dubai Chamber, Perlin will help enterprises integrate world-leading blockchain technology into their operations,” said Dorjee Sun, CEO of Perlin. “This includes helping enterprises of all sizes – from multinationals to micro-, small- and medium-sized businesses across all industries – to better participate in the global economy.”
