Digital Economies Seek Blockchain

“This Institute therefore creates new opportunities for fintech companies who come with investments. We hope it will soon thrive beyond our expectation.”

The said institute will focus in the fields including science and technology, finance, as well as talent training and blockchain application.

Vanuatu’s project marks its first steps towards digital economic development; following those of several big-gun nations such as China, Japan, Korea, and the U.S.

According to the report, this project will not only help Vanuatu to build up an advanced authority based on digital technology but also to push up national GDP, and upgrade its national facilities and public services.
