PSS2019 AMERCIA CONFERENCE THEME

Growing in the Age of Risk and Leading with Digital Transformation

Although the United States economy and labor markets are recovering, new challenges such as Environmental Fluctuations, Trade Disputes, Tariffs and many other geopolitical, natural and economic challenges occur and effect both regional and global procurement.

For multinational corporations, it's no doubt that risks are increasing in integrating the global supply network and more transparent and agile supply chain systems need to be enhanced to cope with this ever-changing policy and environment. For regional operators, how to build up their strategic supplier relationships to win long-term benefits in an ever-crowded regional market is what should be addressed and resolved. Meanwhile, digital technologies including Big Data, AI, Block Chain bring greater efficiency and accuracy to operations, but worries still exist in cybersecurity, accessing talent, regulatory compliance, and disruptive innovation.

It's absolutely a new opportunity for the all to review your future-fit procurement strategy and find the right direction to go to ensure you will stay competitive.
