18 March 2020 – The new decade welcomed the world with a series of unfortunate events – raging wildfires, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, geopolitical conflict, and a global pandemic. The Makati Business Club hosted a virtual roundtable discussion with Robert Joffe, President of Frost & Sullivan Japan, to assess these issues and navigate disruptions in the global market.

We acknowledge review and revision will be needed, including to ensure people can make a living or receive assistance, and food and other goods can move in a timely manner.
