Supporting bodies of the Oil & Gas Procurement Leaders Forum Asia 2014

Research Partner:

The Beijing Axis is a China-focused international advisory and procurement firm operating in four principal areas: Commodities, Capital, Procurement, and Strategy.

Since our establishment in 2002, we have successfully worked with many international and Chinese MNCs across various sectors and industries, with a core focus on the mining and resources, industrial and engineering sectors. Our work is always cross-border – supporting international firms as they act in unfamiliar territory in China, or supporting Chinese firms as they venture out and 'go global'. We are committed to safety and sustainability, and our solutions emphasise 'actions and transactions'.

Our company is organised along four synergistic cross-border business units: Beijing Axis Commodities, Beijing Axis Capital, Beijing Axis Procurement and Beijing Axis Strategy:

Beijing Axis Commodities, Beijing Axis Capital, Beijing Axis Procurement and Beijing Axis Strategy

Beijing Axis Commodities supports commodity producers with their international marketing efforts and the structuring of off-take agreements, and assists commodity consumers with their procurement efforts in securing supply. We offer comprehensive services across the transaction chain, from origination, negotiation, and structuring to logistics. We can also assist in arranging financing in selected cases. Through our entrenched on-the-ground position in China and extensive networks, we are a trusted partner for both buyers and sellers.

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.
