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. Bloomberg | Getty ImagesHe added that those changes will have some implications for Southeast Asia, when companies think about how to strengthen the resilience of their supply chains. "If some of them diversify to Southeast Asia, there will be more opportunities for the Southeast Asian economies, including Singapore," Chan said.

Hoi An, Vietnam (CNN) New Yorker Neal Bermas had traveled around the world, but Vietnam literally stopped him in his tracks. Combining his business savvy with an ambitious nonprofit model, in 2007 he co-founded STREETS International , based in Hoi An. "Where we take one young person from the village, suddenly ... the whole village starts to think about, 'maybe my kid, too.'" Bermas said 100% of STREETS graduates have found employment, mostly at four- and five-star hotels in Vietnam. Bermas: All the young people in our program come from poverty -- without enough to eat, without electricity and plumbing.
