About the Webinar

BACKGROUND INFORMATION


Neither individuals nor companies have been immune to the impact that the current pandemic has had on our global network of Supply Chains.


Whether it is due to being unable to purchase your favourite overseas brand in a supermarket, satisfy tightened export/import regulations or receive essential components to further manufacture goods, COVID has shown that our global supply chains lack resilience.


During this webinar we initially assess the current macroeconomic and geopolitical landscape and investigate how these influences have redefined the flow of trade, as well as the future working practises of supply chain.


With thanks to our Panel:

  • Mark Rathbone, Partner, PwC Singapore
  • Jonathan Wharfe, Group Head Of Procurement (Chief Procurement Officer) at ESSENTRA PLC
  • Marc Philipp, Management Consulting Leader, PwC South East Asia Consulting, PwC Singapore
  • Max Lin, EM Asia Strategy at Natwest Markets

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN


We will hear from organisations that have themselves had to quickly repair, rethink and reconfigure their Supply Chain, seeking ways to mitigate risk of future disruption, incorporate changing consumer demands such as sustainability and balance potential increased overheads.


This webinar aims to share best practise, recognise where forced change may now be here to stay and look to the future to understand how other companies may apply these insights to better their robustness.


We will discuss:

  • How will China respond to the change of supply and buyer habits from the west?
  • What will be the impact on Singapore and how will SG respond?
  • How Singapore responds and adjusts to the long-term impacts, maintain its positions and shape future opportunities.
  • Macro-economic factors, recent trade deals like Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP)
  • Impact of trade deals and supply chains on Asian currencies.
