Zhang Chao, the President of ZIIOT, co-organizer of the conference, was invited to attend the meeting.

IDcode is a code identification distribution and management system with two-dimensional code as the main carrier. IDcode, which can assign an unique and traceable digital identity to each object(people, thing, item) in international trade, help to realize the interconnectivity among different regions, different platforms, different systems and different code systems, that is, the "ID card" and "Passport" of each objects(people, thing, item) in International Trade Circulation. Based on the global unified identification encoding system combined with “blockchain” technology to solve the problem of authenticity, traceability and non-tamperability of the “international trade data link”, that is, the "Letter of Credit" of each objects(people, thing, item)in International Trade Circulation.
Uniform standards and data interoperability are the basic conditions andrequirements of international trade facilitation. ZIIOT will continue toaccelerate the application and popularization of IDcode,a scientific encodingstructure in lines with ISO/IEC 15459, realize the interconnection of differentcountries, regions, platforms and systems, promote the high-quality andsubstainable development of international trade, and realize the optimizationand efficient allocation of global resources.
