Tuesday, September 15 | International tax talk quarterly series: With the EY Global Tax Desk Network (1 pm ET)

A series addressing pertinent global tax topics and recent developments

Future state Asia 2.0: navigating evolving supply chains and business shifts

In an environment defined by continuous global change and shifting paradigms, multinationals are having to evaluate their global supply chains. COVID-19 supply interruptions, trade policy uncertainty, the evolving geopolitical landscape, and increasing customer and consumer demands are creating new risks. Multinationals are increasingly focused on supply chain resilience and greater diversity of manufacturing, shared services, and hub company structures and locations, resulting in more distributed operating models.

Business approaches and operating models in Asia-Pacific are inherently complex. Evaluating operating models and supply chains and making location decisions require analyzing numerous business, operational and tax factors. Within Asia-Pacific, recent trends and developments in the ASEAN1 region and India may influence this analysis.

Our panelists will discuss how organizations can address these business challenges and manage their global tax profile amid disruption, with a focus on ASEAN and India. Topics will include:

  • Key trends and developments reshaping global supply chains
  • Responding to global challenges using more agile and resilient supply chains
  • ASEAN's emerging role in the shared services sector, global trade and manufacturing
  • India's increased importance and expanding role in global supply chains and the China +1 approach
