The hardships experienced in 2020 led to a great deal of reflection and learning across the entire global community as we pushed through a time of great uncertainty. The challenges that were brought on by the pandemic were on par with events we have only seen during the economic crisis of 2008, yet nevertheless we are remaining optimistic and looking forward to a future laden with new opportunities for innovation, disruption to the outdated ways some things have been done until now in commerce, as well as the evolution of the technology landscape and business habits that shape those advancements in technology.
We have hit the ground running in 2021, with many exciting projects and proposals as well as lots of great strategic partnerships that we will be announcing officially throughout the year. We’re happy to share that Vasanda is working on partnerships that will extend the Vasanda digital trade facilitation platform to include sustainable frictionless trade finance solutions, maritime risk and compliance but also powerful ESG reporting for organisations with a carbon neutral objective.
Our outlook on technology and innovation, which we have come to be known for here at Vasanda, remains strong. This month we wanted to bring you up to date on other trade initiatives that are very important to us and which allow us to fulfil the ambition of developing and realising a more sustainable and equitable future in supply chain operations across borders and organisations of different sizes.
On the 9th of Dec. 2020 we hosted a webinar in collaboration with the Department of International Trade and colleagues in Argentina where we presented our vision of creating digital trade routes in South America in conjunction with partners at the DIT. We are delighted to report that the outcome was very positive and has already led to engagements for partnerships in Argentina with ambitious producers, service providers and commodity exporters. Our objective is to create a linear digital trade route facilitated by our trade facilitation platform which connects supply chain lifecycle from port door-to-door digitally, therefore creating a one of a kind transparent digital trade corridor utilising a host of modern technology methods including blockchain machine learning and fully automated cloud native enterprise initiative.
