The Australian government has launched an international blockchain trial with Singapore to promote blockchain to public servants, as the latest action in a series of pro-blockchain efforts.
It has been reported that the Australia Border Force (ABF) launched a blockchain trade trial in collaboration with Singapore Customs and Singapore Infocomm Media Development Authority to test digital verification systems.
Michael Outram, the Commissioner of ABF, said:
“This initiative will incorporate paperless trading and secure, digital exchange of trade information as part of the future architecture and design of an Australian Trade Single Window.”
However, the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Australian Industry Group, and financial institutes across Australia and Singapore, including ANZ, will take part in the trial.
The Border Force will convey its findings from this project to the Supply Chain Working Group. The pilot program is part of the National Blockchain Roadmap led by Chloe White from the Department of Industry, Science, Energy, and Resources.
On November 5, DISER also launched the Australian Public Servant blockchain network in line with the Blockchain Roadmap.
Likewise, the network is a way to “uncover who are the public servants that are interested in blockchain.” The community for blockchain enthusiasts will be open to any public servants that are interested in the technology.
Thus, the report stated:
“It’s a first step in delivering on Signpost seven of the National Blockchain Roadmap: raising awareness across the APS.”
