Procurement and Supply Institute of Asia


PASIA is at the heart of the huge shift that will see Asia Pacific and the Middle East become two thirds of the world economy by 2030.

It is at the heart because PASIA is the leading procurement and supply association in the region and is at the forefront of advancing the profession to be ready for this shift through advancing ethics, excellence and eServices.

PASIA is a non-stock, non-profit organization based in Asia and serving Asia Pacific and the Middle East. PASIA goes beyond procurement and supply management professionals alone to develop a multi-disciplined community of procurement, finance, manufacturing, IT, C-level executives and Government Department Heads. The purpose of this community is both to recognize and to leverage the procurement and supply management within companies and government to impact spends strategically. CEO’s, Boards and Government are awakening to the fact that their total spend requires applied expertise along the whole supply chain from procurement to pay to and cross all categories of spend to both impact costs and reduce their risks.

PASIA is a unique network that leverages across countries in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and tackles strategic procurement and supply management issues. It provides opportunities for the promotion of the profession and the expansion of professional skills and knowledge.
