Join us for our insightful grand panel discussion on rethinking supply chains in Asia, with a special focus on Taiwan. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about unprecedented changes in the way supply chains operate around the world, and Asia has been no exception. Our four panelists will delve into the disruptions in global supply chains in Asia, with a particular focus on Taiwan’s experience. Markus Herrmann (China Macro Group), Lukas Zuest (VISCHER), Simona Grano (UZH), and Nico Luchsinger(Asia Society Switzerland) will provide valuable insights into the challenges and opportunities that have arisen from the pandemic and learn about the latest developments in supply chain management in Asia. Come and be part of the conversation as we rethink supply chains in the wake of the pandemic and explore the opportunities and challenges in Asia.
