About Event & Agenda

COVID-19 has devastated the world’s strongest economies and, for the first time since 2009, sees the U.S economy entering a recession. In IT outsourcing, many have started to realize the fragility of a single-source strategy, particularly those depend solely on China, India, or another major market for software development and IT services. It’s high time they consider reshaping the supply chains. This July, we will unpack the matter of geo-diversification which will hopefully help your organization recover and build resilience for the long haul.

FPT Corporation, Southeast Asia leading IT services provider, and US-ASEAN Business Council Southeast Asia (USABC) are delighted to co-host the webinar: COVID-19 IMPACTS: DIVERSIFICATION FOR A RESILIENT SUPPLY CHAIN 2020. The event will provide fresh insights into:

  • Global Investment Situation in Vietnam by Mr. Michael W. Michalak – Senior Vice President and Regional Managing Director of the US-ASEAN Business Council.
  • Vietnam’s Investment Prospect in Recovery Phrase by Director General Do Nhat Hoang – The Foreign Investment Agency, Ministry of Planning and Investment.
  • Experiences & practices: maintaining business continuity with geo-diversification from Mr. Brett S. Johnson – Founder & CEO at Novalian Solutions.
  • Rethink the supply chain for resiliency by Dr. Truong Gia Binh – Chairman of Vietnam Software Association (VINASA), Founder & Chairman of FPT Corporation.
