This episode of The Virtual Eric Miscoll Show (The EMS) focuses on how Asian companies are restarting after the pandemic shutdown. IMI is a Top 50 EMS, operating in 10 countries, and headquartered in the Philippines. CEO Arthur Tan gives us a frank assessment of how IMI is addressing the challenges of complying with rapidly changing local requirements for re-opening factories and working with customers amid continuing travel restrictions and closed borders. Howell Wang, based in China, discusses how his clients are trying to minimize the supply chain disruption of the pandemic, while adapting to demand fluctuations. Added to the Covid-19 disruptions are the pressures to move manufacturing out of China to mitigate risks. Lots happening in Asia and these two have a ringside seat; they share their insights with the EMSNOW audience.
