Digital Standards for Trade (DST)

A new World Trade Board initiative, Digital Standards for Trade (DST), is aiming to fuel interoperability in the trade supply chains among banks, shippers, customs, ports, and exporters and importers through standards and novel solutions. The project, xperagroup.com originally incubated by MasterCard and launched in Singapore with the collaboration of multiple organisations, is now part of the World Trade Board.

The World Trade Symposium 2018 (WTS) will investigate the issues and opportunities to transform trade with a vision of improving people’s lives through increased collaboration. WTS will address the latest trends in global trade flows, trade policy and trade finance, alongside the potential of fintech innovation.
