During the 56th International Agricultural Fair which happened in Paris, French president Emmanuel Macron has conveyed the advantages to business through the use of blockchain technologies.
French President Emmanuel Macron Suggests EU Use Blockchain Technologies. The French president, Emmanuel Macron, asserted that both the agricultural industry in France as well as the food industry, in general, will benefit immensely through the integration of blockchain:
“Let’s do this in Europe, [be at the] the vanguard of agricultural data by developing tools that will track every product from raw material production to packaging and processing.”
-President Macron commented.
The French president asked the EU to grasp the utilization of blockchain so as to take advantage of the potential which exists in both of these business sectors. A year ago, the French government declared a partnership with IBM in regards to its Pathways to Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) education system.
This incorporated the improvement of new abilities in information science, cloud computing, internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and blockchain. The push forward on blockchain would see new alumni, and experienced specialized experts filling the new opportunities made by the new government drive.
President Macron proposes that the fruitful utilization of blockchain in both agricultural and food businesses could see a stream down impact in different zones, contending:
“The innovation is there and it must be used in the agricultural world as doing so would both bring shared excellence and offer benefits to consumers.”
-President Macron states.
UNICEF France, which has just begun to accept cryptocurrency donations for some of its projects, is similarly positive.
“Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology for charitable purposes offer a new opportunity to appeal to the generosity of the public and continue to develop our actions with children in our country of intervention.”
