DUBAI: - The MENA chapter of the Singapore-based 'Locus Chain Foundation' and the State Informatics Ltd (SIL), the state-owned enterprise in Mauritius, signed a strategic agreement to introduce blockchain technology to the public and private sector IT systems of Mauritius and several African countries and India.

SIL currently provides Information Communication Technology (ICT) solution services and has plans to increase its scope of application to complete the ICT solution based on the blockchain platform which is capable of conducting end-to-end transactions in less than two seconds, irrespective of the speed of the broadband.

Lee Sang Yoon, CEO of the Locus Chain Foundation, said: "Although countries in Africa have favourable natural conditions, large land area and abundant natural resources, the value of the continent's real currency is not very competitive in the global market. There are many countries in the continent where national production, distribution and management systems are relatively inadequate. There is a disadvantage that maintenance costs are relatively large because they rely heavily on centralised management systems introduced in western countries. Hence, the blockchain platform 'locus chain' is introduced as an infrastructure system and settlement currency in African countries. This will make a significant change in the way of transactions and will be possible to contribute to economic development by enhancing national economy as it can be settled and maintained at relatively low cost. These results will help resolve global inequalities".
