The recent changes in the international geopolitical, tax and trade environment will require a different course to be navigated by companies seeking to sustain and grow their business in the Asia-Pacific region. Expecting unexpected shocks and surviving such events will be the new norm and forces companies to re-examine not only their manufacturing footprint but also their supply chains and operating models, so they become more agile and resilient. This seminar will take a deeper dive into the factors driving the changes in the operating models and how to achieve increased supply chain resilience to deliver increased stability, revenue enhancement and cost reduction for China-based companies and provide case studies.

  • Recent trends in the international geopolitical, tax and trade environment
  • Re-examining current supply chain and operating models
  • Case studies on companies supply chain and operating model restructuring
  • Perspectives from China and other Asian countries
