The keynote address was delivered by Jim Beveridge, General Manager: Global Supply & Logistics, Westfarmers Industrial & Saftey.  Jim is a Director of Westfarmers and established the company's sourcing and supply chain hubs in Mainland China. 

While the speaker did not focus solely on China as a partner for low cost sourcing, he drew on his experince with China to explain the challenges faced by Westfarmers and the procedures put in place to minimise risk and its impact on their supply chain.  It was honest insight into Westfarmer's experience with low cost country sourcing, and while Jim admintted there are a number of challenges on the ground in China, his biggest challenge continues to be attaining buy-in from Westfarmer employees who are the ones using the products sourced out of these countries.
