Extraordinary Times

Extraordinary Times

Sep. 28 | “Extraordinary times call for extraordinary vision” is the slogan we’ve adopted for this year’s SCMAP Supply Chain Conference – or, at least, a reimagined version of it, seeing that we’re still not allowed to have public gatherings and...

A Chance to Rebuild

A Chance to Rebuild

Sep. 14 | I have spent the past six months holed up in a flat alongside EDSA, and so I’ve had a somewhat closer view of how things along Metro Manila’s major artery has changed.   At the beginning of the lockdowns, of course, EDSA was empty, a stark image...
