SINGAPORE — The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way companies deploy their employees and how they organize their supply chains — and that could create opportunities for Southeast Asia, says Singapore's trade and industry minister.
"Since the coronavirus outbreak, we have seen that it will bring about fundamental changes in the way people work and organize their supply chains.
"And that will cause a reshuffling of global production and supply chains," he added.

"If some of them diversify to Southeast Asia, there will be more opportunities for the Southeast Asian economies, including Singapore," Chan said.
