From Bilateral to Multilateral Models - ET Edge

From Bilateral to Multilateral Models

India has been at the forefront of championing the concept of multilateral collaboration over the past decade. We’ve witnessed notable achievements in this domain, such as the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) facilitating the National Financial Switch or the Unified Payments Interface (UPI), which has empowered various stakeholders to coexist harmoniously within an ecosystem without the fear of displacement. Now, this collaborative spirit is extending its reach into the realms of commerce and credit through initiatives like the Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC) and the Open Credit Enablement Network (OCEN).

Multilateral models in commerce, characterized by interactions involving multiple parties, are gaining prominence due to technological advancements. One key aspect to explore is the applicability of this model across various industries and sectors. This transition is often facilitated by open protocols, which serve as the infrastructure for these multilateral systems. Open protocols enable standardized communication and data exchange among diverse participants, fostering collaboration and innovation. By discussing real-world examples, participants can delve into how open protocols are transforming traditional commerce, unlocking new possibilities for businesses to engage with a broader ecosystem.
