Survey Results: An Asian Perspective on Key Challenges and Opportunities currently facing Business Procurement

 

As Asia’s emerging economies take on a greater and more dynamic role in the interconnected global business landscape, companies of every size are finding a greater array of opportunities to meet their procurement needs more cheaply and effectively. However, hand in hand with these opportunities are increasingly complex challenges to overcome as companies develop larger supplier networks, process more transactional data and have to adhere to stricter regulatory compliance requirements than ever before.

Worldwide Business Research has conducted interviews with dozens of procurement experts: directors, global and regional heads, chairmen and principal analysts, in order to gain unique insight into the key challenges and opportunities which occupy the thoughts and dealings of leading procurement professionals in the current Asian business climate.

The rest of the report can be found on http://procureconasia.wbresearch.com/.

The research was conducted as part of the ProcureCon Asia conference to be held 01-02 June 2016 at the Amara Sanctuary at Sentosa, Singapore. 

ProcureCon Asia is firmly established as Asia's leading gathering for Global and Regional CPOs as well as Asian Heads of Procurement actively engaged in the evolution towards full strategic procurement. Returning for its 4th year in Singapore, the event brings together 250+ senior procurement leaders including 70+ CPO's and Heads of Procurement from 16+ industries for 3 days of learning, networking and professional development. 

“It was a pleasure for me to participate to a well organize and insightful event that is growing in size and quality year after year”.

Vincent Baril, General Manager, CP Global Commercial, Shell Eastern Petroleum
