Digitisation, regulation and standardisation – The implications for Africa

Events / 23-11-21 / Share Link

Trade digitisation has moved on apace, with the acceleratory impact of the pandemic on digital adoption widely acknowledged. Attitudes have changed amongst governments and private sector alike, but the challenges surrounding the development of the regulation, standardisation and interoperability necessary to enable the true global scaling of digital trade have gained sudden urgency.

At Day 1 of GTR Africa, industry leaders Tedd George (Chief Narrative Officer, Kleos Advisory UK), Frank Wendt (Executive Chairman, FQX), Robin Findlay (Vice-President, Global Sales & Marketing, Surecomp), Jack Bismohun (Business Development Director, GUUD Africa) and Rahul Rastogi (CFO, Africa & Mena; Group CFO, Cocoa Beans, Olam Food Ingredients) tackled scalability challenges from an African perspective.
