Will COVID-19 lead to a permanent shift in how we manage our supply chains? Over the past several months, countries in Asia have been on the frontlines of both economic recovery and societal changes precipitated by the pandemic. As we begin to move forward, it is important to start thinking about how to respond to the profound impacts COVID-19 has had on various industries.
Join two experts from the UBC Sauder community in Asia to reflect on the impact of COVID-19 on supply chains. Learn ways businesses are navigating these disruptions, protecting their supply chains, and exploring new trends for the future.
