STRATEGIES FOR NAVIGATING THE BREWING COLD WAR TO LIMIT DISRUPTIONS TO GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAINS
November 11, 2020
Program 6 - 8 p.m. PT
Networking available before at 5:30p.m. and again after at 8p.m. PT
A panel of industry experts will be speaking on sourcing and other strategies being used to navigate through the challenges brought on by the US trade war with China and options to remain competitive with China's emerging technological powerhouse.
Companies on both sides of the Pacific are trying to develop strategies to mitigate risk — whether it be hoarding supplies or looking at shifting the location of production facilities. While large manufacturers have the financial wherewithal and industry connections to navigate through disruptions in the supply chain, many small and mid-size tech manufacturers in the U.S. do not. Come join us to learn valuable insights from Industry how they have navigated these risks.
