ARC Consulting 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 development of sustainable supply chains, and the underlying causes. It aims to share the insights of the report to help decision-makers develop their understanding of key trends and create better strategies with CSR monitoring.

SwedCham China is delighted to invite Johan Annell, ARC Consulting, to present this year's report and key findings. During the meeting we will discuss:

- What is the current sourcing situation in China and Southeast Asia and Europe?

- What will sourcing look like after the global pandemic and what are the trading patterns with War disruptions?

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

- Which are the most attractive sourcing countries and regions when China is still the world's top sourcing destination?

- How could companies handle the increasing demand for supply chain sustainability?

- How could companies re-assess the rapidly shifting costs and risks following ESG challenges to drive sustainable brand growth?

Join us on this seminar either on site or online as we present this year's report and interesting findings.
