Ajay Sethi, Managing Partner at ASA, speaking at the 47th Joint Meeting of IJBCC and JIBCC in Tokyo, emphasizing the importance of creating strong & resilient supply chains. With frequent disruptions in global supply chains brought on by wars, climate change, trade restrictions etc, a “China + 1” strategy is a necessity in today’s VUCA environment. With diversification, sustainability and resilience being the name of the game, India stands out as a preferred manufacturing partner for Japan.
