A number of work teams were formed in the workshop, and each team worked together to develop a blockchain scenario in customs field.

Hussam Mohammed said: “Dubai has positioned itself as a global city, attracting foreign trade and tourism and earning its place as an international business centre. Dubai government’s blockchain strategy calls for the shift of all applicable transactions to blockchain by 2020.”

“Blockchain is like a new operating system for trust. It creates a single, shared version of the truth that no single entity owns or controls. This leads to increased trust and integrity in the flow of information among participants,” he added. - TradeArabia News Service
