The Premise
The world of supply chain gained further prominence over the last two years when the COVID-19 pandemic led to significant disruptions of supplies of materials and goods due to border closures. It was further exacerbated by the intense trade rivalry between the West and China and recently by the war when Russia invaded Ukraine.

But the idea of a stable supply chain has never been in the works.

Supply Chain Management as a profession has always been about managing the fragmented and complex world of acquiring materials and manufacturing products at the lowest possible cost. The logistics of moving them at speed or ensuring an optimum total landed cost remains a constant challenge. And ensuring steady flow to mitigate changes due to demand and supply.

Disruption seems to be the order of the day for many supply chain professionals today. Success in ensuring resilience in their company’s supply chains is becoming a big part of their work. Failure to do so may be detrimental to both the company’s ability to compete successfully and the professional’s ability to hold on to their job.

Supply Chain Asia Forum 2022
It is apt that we could finally bring back a face-to-face meeting today. It is more important that we are also able to tackle issues head-on.

The changes in supply chain operations management will only intensify further – not just because of global supply chain disruption – but through the adoption of technologies.

Or, more specifically, the selective adoption of intelligent technologies by those who can afford them, are fully aware of its benefits and realise that they can gain the upper hand in getting it right through successful implementation.

This year’s Forum aims to provide a platform to dwell deeper into the following areas of supply chain trends and developments:

  • Disruption and Resilience of Supply Chains – The Impact, Challenges and Opportunities
  • The State of Smart Technologies for Logistics and Supply Chain – What Works, What Don’t
  • Procurement 4.0 – Myths and Realities
  • Shippers’ Dilemma- The Innovation Implications from Outsourcing

Forum Format
The structure of the Forum will be set out differently this year. Instead of just panellists being invited to share their views, each session will start with a 10-minute presentation to articulate the thoughts of the topic set.

A panel discussion will then follow it up to allow sharing of various points of view concerning the specifics of each topic.
