Asia Perspective has been conducting sourcing surveys for the last decade, measuring the perception of Asian sourcing markets and how it changes over time. This research is based on an extensive survey focused on giving a unique forward-looking indication of what companies experience and what they perceive in the future.

This year, the survey focuses on companies looking to diversify their supply chain to alternative sourcing markets, the prevalence of this phenomenon, and the underlying causes.

During the event, we will hear from Johan Annell, Partner at Asia Perspective, present the result and talk about:

- What is the current sourcing situation in China and in other parts of Asia?

- What will sourcing look like post-Shanghai lockdown and what are the long-lasting effects stemming from it?

- How could companies diversify their supply chain to avoid future risks?

- Which are the most attractive sourcing countries and regions rather than China in the future? Moving home or moving to SEA?

- How could companies handle the increasing demand for transparency and compliance on sustainability in the supply chain?

- How could companies re-assess the rapidly shifting costs and risks following a turbulent year of supply chain disruptions and uncertain macro-outlooks?
