Leading the Global Restart: New approaches to innovation in risk, sustainability and digitalisation across Asia Pacific

The Asia Pacific region has lead the way towards a global restart as we journey through the COVID-19 pandemic, but where now for globalisation and global supply chains? Will a shift to greater regional reliance impact both indigenous and multi-national businesses.

Across two days, you’ll explore topics from identifying tactics, skills and technology to achieve your sustainability goals, ways to understand your suppliers, build trust and gain greater visibility for risk mitigation and supply chain disruption as well as how procurement can better leverage data and technology to improve resilience, efficiency and sustainability goals.

Each day of Innovation In: Asia Pacific will have clearly defined topic areas of focus:


Asia Pacific, the global economic restart & digitalisation as a driver for positive, innovative transformation

As the global economy begins to rebound and trade routes open, we will explore what this has looked like throughout Asia-Pac and beyond with a deep dive into the disruptive nature of Covid 19 and how businesses have witnessed an unprecedented acceleration and need for all things digital and innovative.


Supply chain redesign to focus on long-term sustainability, resilience & business growth

Procurement’s resiliency has played a key role in keeping organisations and staff buoyant. Discover what the new corporate reality looks like and how to position procurement, supply chain and our businesses for enhanced resilience.

We will explore how the function is looking beyond the crisis and crystallising 2020’s efforts to support their entire procurement vision and evolving value proposition to enable ESG, innovation and revenue generating initiatives.
