With pandemic related disruptions and increasing geoeconomic rivalry, governments and organisations across Southeast Asia are now taking measures to develop more resilient and ‘shock proof’ supply chains. What will the ‘new normal’ look like for exporters looking to secure the movement of essential supplies and consumer goods across South East Asia?
Citing the experience of Vietnam as a case study, this program will look at how rapid economic development and trade orientated policies have enabled this emerging South East Asian nation to become a key player in global supply chains. Looking at policies in across both Vietnam and Australia and supply chain best practices, this program will outline how Australian businesses can best insulate themselves against supply chain disruption.
