Asia Supply Chains: A New Era

We partnered with East and Partners to speak to over 400 financial decision makers from organisations across nine markets in Asia Pacific*. 89% of the responses originated from Corporate Treasurers and CFOs in the region, with 80% of the responses coming from Hong Kong SAR, India, Japan, mainland China, and Singapore.

The survey focuses on how supply chains and working capital strategies in Asia are being reshaped, and how corporates are incorporating digitisation and sustainability into their supply chain management priorities.
