A subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports is working with the Belgian port of Antwerp on a test of a blockchain platform that will make international trade easier.

The proof-of-concept test will be conducted by Maqta Gateway using its Silsal blockchain platform, which was launched in June to better connect importers and exporters, according to a press release. The Antwerp test is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

“This is an important moment for us as we prepare to implement the first applied blockchain solution of its kind between Abu Dhabi and the world,” said Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, in the release.
