16TH PRIME SOURCE FORUM
23-24 MARCH 2023
In physical format only
Keynote address: Economic outlook amid the global uncertainties
Session 1: Whilst the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) was gradually entering into force despite many rounds of various ratifications, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) established in 2020 reduces customs duties and aim at simplifying supply chains and intra-movement of goods in the region. Countries involved in RCEP account for almost one-third of the world's population and economic output. Impacts on the global fashion supply chain will be discussed in this panel.
Session 2: Amidst the beauty of RCEP, is the fashion supply chain in the region itself sufficient enough to sustain alone? Obstacles and solutions to the development will be explored in view of material supply, value chain integration, freight management and logistics support, production backups, room for expansion and human capital.
Session 3: The EU market - All about sustainability
Apart from the Human Rights and Environmental Due Diligence, Environmental Social Governance (ESG), The Microfibre 2030 Commitment, what other factors would affect the European fashion supply chain?
Session 4: Smart manufacturing enables value chain transparency, production customisation and lead time optimisation. Progress of smart manufacturing in Asia will be unveiled and best practices shared.
Session 5: Innovations and sustainable practices enhance a circular economy in Asia.
All Information up to date as of today.
