The Shanghai Municipal Commission of Commerce, Shanghai Customs, the People’s Bank of China and the Bank of Communications, among others, are all members of the alliance, Global Times reported Thursday.

“This is the first blockchain application project in customs,” said Ye Jian, a general administration official at Shanghai Customs. “China upholds multilateral trade and constantly improves its business environment by seeking technological innovation.”

China Seems to be Taking the Lead

Several free trade zones in China already use blockchain technology to digitize trade, improve efficiency and reduce costs of operations, per the report.

Blockchain adoption has been growing in China, especially after the country’s president, Xi Jinping, publicly supported the technology, saying that the nation should take the leading position in its development.
