How COVID-19 Will Trigger Global Supply Chain Realignment… and What To Do About It
April 29, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The Sequential Consequences of China Ripple Effects from Coronavirus
IMC sister-center Catalyst Connection is hosting this webinar that will explore the ramifications of the COVID-19 virus, starting with the initial impact at the center of the virus in China, then in terms of the short-term effects on business and finally the long-term impact on trade and global supply chains. This webinar will demonstrate how a cascading effect starting in China will magnify several existing critical macro-trends within China that will ripple outwards and dramatically affect supply, revenue, earnings and market share of a significant range of global companies.
Even if businesses do no commerce with China at all, the widespread and pervasive effects of these trends will still reach them and influence prospects for survival and growth, alike. This one-hour webinar will examine these effects and how the downstream results will dramatically change global supply chain and pose serious challenges for US businesses unprepared for this adjustment:
- Supply chain disruption
- Shipping and transportation problems
- Work force concerns
- Reductions in quality & productivity
- Capital & liquidity issues
- Production relocation & global supply chain realignment
Finally, you will learn about a series of detailed recommendations to help businesses affected by this cataclysmic change come out of this stronger than ever.
