MIE Groups annouces strategic partnership with the India Blockchain Alliance

The two entities will convene the brightest minds to discuss how blockchain technology will transform the supply chain and logistics industry

Dubai, 08th August 2020: The India Blockchain Alliance (IBA), the leading trade association promoting the comprehensive adoption of blockchain technology in India, and MIE Groups, have today announced a partnership that will see the two entities collaborate on MIE Group’s maiden virtual edition of the Africa Technology and Security Week which will be held from 21st to 25th September 2020 on

The India Blockchain Alliance is an authoritative group of experts and evangelists who aim to encourage the responsible adoption of blockchain technology by industry and governments across India as a means to drive innovation in service delivery across all sectors of the economy.

As part of this collaboration, IBA will convene subject matter experts in the blockchain ecosystem to drive thought leadership sessions that will cover topics such as blockchain technology, use cases, smart contracts, and the benefits and challenges of blockchain technology in the supply chain.

MIE Group Chairman, David Wang said, “MIE Groups is pleased to be collaborating with IBA to guide and prepare businesses in Africa, on how they can solve their own unique problems using blockchain.”

“The current global crisis has exposed frailties in the entire global supply chain,” explained Mr Raj Kapoor Founder of IBA. “Africa Technology & Security Week will be a platform for us to identify key pain points in the existing supply chain and advise on how blockchain can help rebuild a more resilient supply chain for the future.”

With technology playing an increasingly critical role in every aspect of business during this global crisis,  MIE Group has developed a remarkable virtual exhibition platform – Global Trade Week (GTW VE) – which allows adversely affected businesses across the region to easily access the global market and reach out to a vast network of buyers and suppliers.

“The new buzzwords in the industry are resilience and agility,” observed Zahoor Ahmed, MIE Groups’ VP of Strategy & Partnerships. “We are happy to be working with IBA because we are certain that blockchain-related innovations in the supply chain will have the potential to deliver tremendous business value.”

As part of its mandate, Africa Technology & Security Week is committed towards creating a partner ecosystem that will deliver next-generation technologies such as Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, 5G, and Internet of Things, to disrupt and enable digital transformation for businesses globally.
