Supply chains around the world have faced shortages, trade challenges and export restrictions, forcing them to focus on resilience and self-reliance. This gradual shift from an open market approach is expected to have a significant impact on the interconnected nature of our world’s supply chains and, in turn, the economies of scale, specialization and access that accompany it.
At a time when the future of the supply chain is a central part of the global conversation, it is essential to understand how its transformation is affecting globalization and various industries, as well as how to prepare and respond most effectively. possible to impending disruptions. Panelists will discuss each of these topics and ultimately share their views on how global channels will evolve from country to country.
