Singapore will be the venue for the first ever Supply Chain Finance Community Forum Asia, taking place on Tuesday, 6th June 2017.

As with the well established European event, the Asian Forum will bring together treasurers, procurement directors, banks, technology vendors and academics to learn from each other and discuss the future of supply chain finance in this fast-moving part of the world. It is being organised by the Supply Chain Finance Community in partnership with the National University of Singapore.

SCF Forum is different from other conferences: with an agenda driven by leading business schools and an ethos that is about learning and networking rather than selling, it attracts the treasurers and procurement directors of corporations who are serious about understanding what supply chain finance can do for their businesses.

“This is a really exciting opportunity to explore how supply chain finance is evolving in this dynamic part of the world. Asia’s fundamental importance to world trade and global corporations makes it the obvious choice for the Supply Chain Finance Community’s first event to be held outside of Europe. We’re really looking forward to working with the National University of Singapore and to comparing learnings with them,” said Michiel Steeman, founder and chairman of the Supply Chain Finance Community.

The full agenda for SCF Forum Asia will be released closer to the event but will include keynote speeches, corporate case studies, plenaries and workshops, offering the most comprehensive review of the state of the supply chain finance industry in Asia.
