Blokchain technology has been gaining increased popularity in the past few years. Companies are seeking novel ways of applying the technology. But despite public intrigue and excitement around the technology, questions still surround what it is, what it does, how it can be used, and its trade-offs.

How is this technology applicable in the supply chain? In the modern economy, supply chains are complicated as the world is globalized and there is a massive international trade framework both between and within countries.

Depending on the product, the supply chain can span over hundreds of stages, multiple geographical (international) locations, a multitude of invoices and payments, have several individuals and entities involved, and extend over months of time. Due to the complexity and lack of transparency of the current supply chains, there is interest in how blockchains might transform the supply chain and logistics industry.

Singapore offers a fertile environment to capture opportunities resulting from emerging digital technologies under the framework of Industry Transformation Map, the sponsorship and guidance of government organization.

For example, the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) has recently stated that it “believes there is room to accelerate growth in blockchain, or other distributed ledger technologies, to help enable a Digital Economy for a Smart Nation and through the Blockchain Challenge, IMDA is enabling companies to develop pioneering solutions using blockchain beyond financial applications”.

During this breakfast event we will explore how blockchain can support supply chain requirements and hear live experiences of 2 leading companies in FMCG and Pharma. We will then facilitate an interactive discussion among participants to understand common themes and areas of interest.
