Join us on Wednesday 17th of June at 05.00 PM for an Exclusive International Webinar on “The OECD’s work around Blockchain, Fintech, and the Impact of COVID-19 on financial services” with Caroline Malcolm, Head of Global Blockchain Policy Centre at Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Young Global Leader of the WEF.
Blockchain has been heralded as the technology of the future for several years. But is it? We are not yet seeing large scale deployment of Blockchain based solutions in any sector, let alone in financial services. Will it really change the world or will it fade and die? Why should we care about Blockchain and what value could it really deliver to businesses, to us as individuals, and to global economics?
Caroline Malcolm heads the Global Blockchain Policy Centre at the OECD. The OECD, as other supranational/international bodies are working hard on coordinating blockchain research and policy across their members. We will hear from Caroline about the work of the OECD on Blockchain and why it is important to them and us.
Caroline heads the OECD’s work on blockchain, assessing its policy implications & building solutions to ensure governments across the world can access and respond to the opportunities and challenges it raises. In this capacity, she has also developed a training programme for policymakers on DLT, leads an advisory board of 100 global blockchain experts, and coordinates a network of project managers across the OECD relating to blockchain in topics as diverse as competition policy, SMEs, the environment, data privacy and the sustainable development goals.
