The forum is about a strategic discussion on the potential benefits and risks of blockchain for our economies and societies, and what governments should do to realise this potential. This conversation set the scene for the forum in demonstrating the readiness of policymakers to leverage this technology to improve the design, implementation and impact of public policy initiatives.
