Promoting trade digitalisation with the International Chambers of Commerce UK

May 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Excerpt from Department for Business & Trade webpage

Digital technology is shaping the future of global trade. In September 2023, the UK reached a unique milestone of making the first ever fully digitalised goods shipment possible from Burnley to Singapore, thanks to the new Electronic Trade Documents Act (ETDA). Join this session to see what this means for your business.

What you’ll learn

  • The benefits and impacts of trade digitalisation
  • Changes introduced by the 2023 Electronic Trade Documents Act
  • Other trade digitalisation developments and initiatives

Adopting an increasingly flexible and modern approach to trade documents, such as electronic bills of lading, this world-leading legislation will make trading cheaper and easier for businesses.

But what does that mean for your business? Brought to you by the International Chambers of Commerce and DBT’s Digital and Services Strategy Team, this UK Export Academy webinar will be helping you to understand the benefits of trade digitalisation, changes introduced by ETDA, future trade digitalisation developments and initiatives and why these matter to your business.
