亚洲开发银行使用DLT执行贸易信用担保

2020-9-14 15:10

 

亚洲开发银行(ADB)宣布,利用分布式账本技术(DLT)完成了一笔信用担保交易,将价值5万美元的塑料从泰国运往越南。飞行员使用轮廓信用证区块链,以前称为Voltron。


渣打银行与卖方泰国的SCG塑料公司合作提供贸易融资,买方是越南的Opec塑料公司,越南投资和发展银行的客户。


亚洲开发银行贸易和供应链金融主管Steven Beck说:"冠状病毒大流行凸显了贸易融资行业数字化运作的必要性。"“这种创新提高了贸易效率,降低了风险,并降低了亚洲发展中国家中小企业的进入壁垒。”


亚洲开发银行IT部门的Ozzeir Khan指出:“我们看到贸易网络正在使用这种技术来增加贸易量并降低复杂性。”


亚洲开发银行是仿造世界银行(World bank)的地区性开发银行,美国和日本是亚洲开发银行的最大股东,各占15.6%,行长也一直是日本人。


这项贸易担保是亚行贸易和供应链融资计划的一部分。在2019冠状病毒大流行期间,它在2020年上半年支持了28亿美元的贸易。交易量比2019年同期增长了67%。


该交易中使用的附加特征是Contour的sell down特征,使银行能够转移风险。


渣打银行是Contour网络的创始人之一,其他六家银行还有曼谷银行、法国巴黎银行、泰国中央银行、汇丰银行、荷兰国际集团和瑞典北欧银行。此后,花旗、星展银行(DBS Bank)、越南的HD银行(HD Bank)、沙特阿拉伯国家银行(Saudi SABB)和SMBC等其他几家银行也加入了进来。该网络使用的是R3 Corda enterprise区块链,目前处于beta测试模式。

 

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) announced the completion of a credit guarantee transaction using distributed ledger technology (DLT) for a $50,000 shipment of plastics from Thailand to Vietnam. The pilot used the Contour Letter of Credit blockchain, formerly called Voltron. 

Standard Chartered worked with the seller Thailand’s SCG Plastics for trade finance and the buyer was Vietnam’s Opec Plastics, a client of the Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam’s (BIDV).

“The coronavirus pandemic underscores the need for the trade finance industry to digitize operations,” said ADB’s Head of Trade and Supply Chain Finance Steven Beck. “This innovation makes trade more efficient, reduces risk, and lowers barriers to entry for small and medium-sized businesses in developing Asia.”

And Ozzeir Khan from ADB’s IT department noted that “we are seeing trade networks using this technology to increase trade volumes and reduce complexity.”

The ADB is a regional development bank modeled on the World Bank in which the largest shareholders are the U.S. and Japan with 15.6% each, and the presidents have always been Japanese.

The trade guarantee is part of the ADB’s Trade and Supply Chain Finance Program. During the COVID-19 pandemic it has supported $2.8 billion of trade in the first half of 2020. The number of transactions is 67% up on the same period in 2019.

An additional feature that was used during this transaction was the sell down feature of Contour, which enables the bank to transfer the risk.

Standard Chartered was one of the Contour network founders alongside six other banks Bangkok Bank, BNP Paribas, CTBC Holding, HSBC, ING and SEB. Since then, several others have joined, including CitiDBS Bank, Vietnam’s HD Bank, Saudi SABB and SMBC. The network uses the R3 Corda enterprise blockchain and is currently in beta testing mode.
