About this webinar
COVID-19 has caused significant supply chain disruptions for businesses and consumers. From semiconductor chips in Singapore to potato chips in Thailand, companies now must reconsider the viability of global production lines, as well as production methods like Just-in-Time and others.
Gartner estimates that 33% of firms have either moved sourcing and manufacturing activities out of China or plan to do so in the next two to three years. Tech giants like Apple, Google, and Microsoft are similarly looking to diversify hardware production, including moving to locations within Southeast Asia (SEA).
Is this the end of the global supply chain as we know it?
During this session, hear from Flex Vice President of Operations Mr Jacob Philip Kanianthara; GEODIS Chief Procurement Officer for Asia Pacific Mr Terence Lee; Cisco Executive Vice President and Chief of Operations Mr Irving Tan; and PSA International Head of Group Commercial, Strategy & Cargo Solutions Ms Ho Ghim Siew on:
- How their businesses have adapted to these global shifts
- Why companies are looking to SEA for their supply chain needs
- How locations like the Riau Islands, Hanoi, and Johor can offer new opportunities for businesses
Supply Chain Twists and Turns Spell New Opportunities in Southeast Asia is the second of Singapore Economic Development Board’s five-part A SEA Of Opportunity webinar series, featuring top executives and leading industry experts discussing opportunities for businesses in the region.
