Singapore-based Blockchain startup Morpheus Labs signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Dreamplus, a Global Startup Incubator powered by a South Korean business conglomerate, to cement their partnership to promote blockchain education and the growth of its ecosystem.

The 7-week intensive programme includes a mix of theoretical and practical components focused on the theory behind blockchain and practical coding of a sample decentralized applications (DApps) conducted with Morpheus Labs Blockchain Platform-as-a-Service (BPaaS).

The programme is suitable for users from diverse backgrounds, ranging from those interested in learning the basics of blockchain technology to budding technology engineers or programmers.

Course and enrolment details are available on https://dreamplus.io/academy/blockchain.

Morpheus Labs believe that students who complete this course will be a step closer to equipping themselves with the necessary skills in relation to the global shortage of blockchain talents. They will be highly sought-after and form a reliable base of market ready talents in Singapore and the region to hire. This is in sync with the Singapore Government’s SMART nation vision of creating a technology hub, of which blockchain technology is a key component of; putting it squarely in the race to be a blockchain-powered nation.

Blockchain technology is still in its nascent phase and often misunderstood. At this stage, early adopters to the technology face hurdles and obstacles in utilizing this technology, prompting the need for education, not only to companies, but to the general public. In turn, education will by its very nature organically encourage and increase the utility of blockchain technology, resulting in more successful case studies.

Mr Dorel D. Burcea, Chief Information Officer of Morpheus Labs says: “Companies and governments are just beginning to understand the disruptive capability of blockchain technology. The already high demand for blockchain developers today is only expected to rise for the foreseeable future. Our platform is purposefully designed to create a friendly ecosystem convenient for students to learn the complex environment of blockchain in its current infancy, giving them a head start to blockchain development and propelling them into the talent-hungry blockchain development world.”

Morpheus Labs believe that with such strong efforts, they will be able to reinstate confidence in the market for blockchain technology and pave a path forward for the up-and-coming blockchain talent pool. Importantly, Morpheus Labs believes that the global economy is at the cusp of technological revolution and are eager to get at the forefront of it.

Expansion plans are set in place to further emphasizes the commitment to build an ecosystem. There will be a series of online and offline events scheduled to take place throughout the year within Asia.

Supply Chain Management Association Becomes Supply Chain Canada

Published

on

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

At its AGM yesterday, the Supply Chain Management Association™ announced its name change to Supply Chain Canada™. The association also launched a new website as part of an overall rebranding initiative.

“The new name and look are part of a transformation that we have undertaken as the association enters its second century,” said Christian Buhagiar, President & CEO of Supply Chain Canada. “Today’s supply chains are dynamic and fast-paced. The association for Canada’s supply chain professionals must reflect that.”

Through the rebranding process, the association has also acquired a meaningful new logo and tagline, “Professionals advancing the future.”

The logo’s maple leaf design not only conveys our nationality; it also represents the connectedness of the supply chain, illustrating the networks and collaboration that are so essential to supply chain success, and the interconnectedness of the association’s federation, institutes and members. Its connected dots can be seen, as well, as the complex route of a global supply chain.

“Professionals advancing the future” succinctly communicates both the professional status of supply chain practitioners and their forward-looking perspective. It is intended to:

  1. Elevate the perception of supply chain practitioners as professionals, acknowledging the value they bring to their organizations and to the Canadian economy.
  2. Encompass the several ways that the association and its members “advance” – in their personal careers and knowledge, and for the profession, the country and the economy.
  3. Express the future focus of the association – with its emphasis on the development of skills and policies – and of the supply chain itself, now so focused on AI, blockchain, robotics, automation and so on.

The new website, now at www.supplychaincanada.com, is enhanced with a modern look and new functionality that enables location-based content for users across Canada.

These changes are not simply style enhancements. They are part of a larger plan to strengthen the association. Supply Chain Canada consolidates the organization’s brand across the country under a single name in every province and territory, removing any possible confusion from its federation structure. “The unity that this will ensure will help us improve recognition in the sector, and thereby provide stronger leadership to the Canadian supply chain community,” said Buhagiar.

The association’s transformation began in 2018 with a new vision and mission, as well as an ambitious three-year strategic plan. The new name and rebranding announced yesterday are part of a larger evolution that will continue over the next two years with the introduction of new and revised educational offerings, new initiatives to engage with industry, more value-added membership benefits and more.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Export Portal CEO Ally Spinu will be adding her take on the alignment of trade facilitation and sustainable development goals at a session at the 9th Asia-Pacific Trade Facilitation Forum (APTFF) in New Delhi.

“The Asia-Pacific region is a wealth of unexplored opportunities which lay deep in the communities of local businessmen and women that just need support in bringing their amazing products to the world to see and buy,” Ms. Spinu said. “I am looking forward to this event and being a part of the change that will help local businesses from this part of the world sell their products globally. I deeply believe that shifting attention to developing SMEs is the major change international trade and local economies have been waiting for.”

This year’s APTFF will focus on how digital and sustainable trade facilitation measures and practices can bring prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region. The forum will investigate opportunities from trade digitalization for sustainable progress of the area and challenges ahead in materializing such opportunities. APTFF will feature panel discussions as well as interactive and informative sessions. These sessions will allow participants to share experiences and perspectives on different aspects of trade facilitation, including trade finance, cross-border eCommerce and paperless trade, transit, innovative application of emerging technologies, and more. APTFF will bring relevant regional initiatives and implementation cases to each session, making it a unique opportunity to share knowledge and practical lessons. The forum will also include many side-events providing a more in-depth exploration of the pertinent trade facilitation issues.

“Agricultural products are the fastest category and industry growing within Export Portal, and I can say that is just natural that SMEs around the world are actively looking for new ways for selling their products around the world,” Ms. Spinu said. “The role of innovative technologies such as Export Portal is crucial in helping these SMEs integrate within the world supply chain of food with ease and at optimal costs. I want to explain the current issues existing within SMEs’ integration in international trade due to the high cost involved and how technology slowly but surely changes this.”

Export Portal’s trade goals align directly with the purpose of this session, as its international B2B trade platform is an affordable and all-encompassing solution for SMEs all over the world. The features that are available and being developed on Export Portal, such as the panel of experts (EP+), the educational hub (EPU), and data flow insights (EPI), provide SMEs with the resources they need to trade effectively on an international scale safely, securely, and efficiently.

The Digital and Sustainable Trade Facilitation for Regional Prosperity session is co-organized by ADB, ESCAP, Ministry of Commerce, India and Confederation of Indian Industry and will be held on Wednesday, September 18, from 9:00 to 10:45 AM.
