Forge the Future at DEFY 2024

As we navigate the rapidly changing waters in both political and economic spheres, we often ask ourselves how to DEFY the odds. How do we challenge tradition and encourage new and innovative solutions? How do we channel our companies in the right direction? Ultimately, how do we support and facilitate our companies to grow and expand their footprint across borders?

Over the last few years, we have recognized that a diverse supply chain is a resilient supply chain. Flexibility to pivot is critical when the environment is ever-changing.
