The world must find a new path to economic prosperity and stability. There is no other choice—the stakes today are too great to ignore. Debts resulting from the financial crisis must be paid down. Government budgets must be restored to balance. Tens of millions of unemployed workers must be put to work and lost trade opportunities must give rise to expanded trade throughout the globe.
High, mid and low income nations can stay on the current economic policy path and cling to the hope of somehow pulling themselves back from the brink, or they can combine efforts and connect their strengths to enter a new era of economic progress, stability, and prosperity. All are necessary to advance the well-being of humanity.

Connecting the Strengths of the World Community Creating Well Being Across Humanity
GCEL, a Swiss based nonprofit global Public / Private Partnership (PPP), invites you to join leading organizations from around the world to empower the Digital Economy that will connect global economies through innovative 21st century technology thereby driving new levels of prosperity, security and peace.
Through 15 years of research and development in the fields of economic and trade development, technology, finance, insurance and logistics, our members and supporters have grown to include more than 150 countries through their pan regional representatives, 26 IGOs and NGOs as well as the world’s most prominent firms that have more than 2.7 million experts in 130 countries and serve approximately 60% of the global GDP.
These organizations have come together under GCEL’s global initiative that has established the targets, tools, road-map and global consensus of the required 21st century technology necessary to re-energize our global economy, enhance cargo security, improve food safety, facilitate faster disaster relief response, and reduce our carbon footprint.
This initiative is being deployed in a way that provides a digital platform which is: truly global, open and equitable to all companies and all regions of the world, based on partnership rather than competition, available to all potential users throughout the world at no cost and delivered through a trusted network of world-class finance, insurance and technology companies driven by huge new market opportunities.
GCEL’s tangible initiative has a far-reaching impact on the world’s economy and security thereby providing the foundation for greater well-being throughout the world, in our time and for generations to come.
GCEL’s objective is to provide the tools and the road map setting the required foundation to empower the Digital Economy triggering sustained global economic growth.
Global experts believe that trade is the main foundation to achieve sustainable economic growth. Trade depends upon 4 interdependent industries: commerce, finance, insurance and logistics. The weakest of these is logistics, which is highly fragmented. Issues facing logistics prevent the other three industries from performing at optimal levels. Enhancing the efficiency of logistics will enable peak logistics performance and at the same time will generate the Ultimate Data Quality to boost the performance of the other three industries, thus reaching their full potential to a complete new level never possible before. This in brief is the main foundation of the Digital Economy environment that will transform the four pillars of trade to a completely new integrated digital level of e-commerce, e-finance, e-insurance and e-logistics.
GCEL’s bold and innovative program will empower the Digital Economy by delivering Soft-Infrastructure driving unprecedented global trade efficiencies and bringing the world in to a new era of 21st century operating efficiency. GCEL’s initiative will reduce the average landed import export costs by 30% with global savings of approximately USD 1.3 trillion annually, and reduce operational costs by up to 15% leading to increase trade by USD 1.2 trillion. It will also provide a new USD 6 trillion market opportunity for the service industry, create a USD 1 trillion SME fund, and create nearly 100 million jobs. The Soft Infrastructure will also provide significant global benefits in the areas of cargo security, food safety, disaster response and environmental protection.
The main foundations of the Soft Infrastructure include the following:
Technology: the Multi Dimensional Digital Economy Application System (MDDEAS) is a non-intrusive open platform technology that has been tested and validated by major public and private organizations throughout the world.
Network: A global trusted network of financial, insurance and technology firms divided equally amount the four world regions selected though a transparency equal opportunity process. These firms will serve as “ Gateways” to deploy the MDDEAS and partake in a new USD 6 trillion market opportunity.
Rapid Global Deployment: Includes the participation of all forms of organizations, each doing what each does best, combined with a unique business model ensuring the sustainability of the core system provided at no cost to the end user, triggered through 4 benchmark trade lane that will be the catalyst to deliver the MDDEAS in 18 months globally,
