In a recent IDB publication, entitled, “A Caribbean Settlement Network: Can Blockchain Ease Intraregional Trade in the Caribbean?”, the authors explore the potential that a blockchain network in the Caribbean holds for reducing non-tariff trade costs and consequently, promoting trade. Across CARICOM, intraregional trade is declining, while trade costs, specifically non-tariff ones, are rising. With increasing empirical evidence suggesting that distributed ledger technologies can reduce non-tariff barriers, the authors highlight how the use of blockchain technology in trade can produce positive results and increase the region’s trade competitiveness.
Against this backdrop, the SRC invites you to its upcoming Lunchtime Chat entitled: “How the Caribbean Settlement Network Can Use Blockchain To Promote Trade”.
