Description

Issues Paper No. 8
 
Supply chain finance is one form of trade financing that has experienced rapid growth in recent years. The paper notes the current lack of globally agreed definition of supply chain finance and thus takes the liberty to discuss two ways of understanding supply chain finance and the different policy issues under each. The paper also discussed regulations affecting cross-border transfer of data which can hamper the growth of information-intensive supply chain finance platforms. Cross-border data transfer regulation is the new non-tariff measure that will challenge the trade community in the foreseeable future.
