Digital Opportunities for Cross-Border Inter-Bank Transactions

Demand for cross-border trade is increasing and, along with it, the expectation of low-cost, real-time movement of money. This challenge has spawned collaborative projects between central banks, banks and corporates across the world--including Project Ubin in Singapore and Project Jasper in Canada--to explore how blockchain and a wholesale sovereign digital currency can power cross-border transactions. This panel brings representatives from the team--the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the Bank of Canada, the Bank of England, and HSBC--to discuss their conclusions and the emerging opportunities.
