GIS & BCCG Joint Web Talk
Supply Chain and Global Free Trade in the Post-Coronavirus World
26 May 2020, 14:00 - 15:00 h (13:00 - 14:00 h GMT+1)
The coronavirus crisis has highlighted the problem of supply dependencies, especially when supply lines are spread out all over the world. In particular, storage-cost-saving schemes of “just-in-time” part deliveries make manufacturers vulnerable to disruptions of all kinds. Businesses will need to take a longer view and improve capitalization to become more resistant. Innovation, creating new business models and increasing productivity will be key. There is also a geopolitical angle to this story. The political power play for hegemony between the United States and China, which also involves Russia and Europe, appears to be leading to global fragmentation. This process too will have a strong impact on supply chains.
Speakers shared with the audience truly valuable insights on how to overcome the distortions that are currently being created, especially in supply chains, global free trade and geopolitical situations.
