The Supply Chain Rules Have Changed – Have you?

The IoD Central London invites all IoD members, their guests and non-members to join us for a panel discussion on the changes in the international supply chain in a post COVID 19 world.

Our keynote speaker Martin Wolf, Associate Editor and Chief Economics Commentator at the Financial Times, will give his views on the impact of COVID-19 on the global trade environment.

The other panel members will share their experiences of adapting to the “new normal” and their thoughts on identifying and mitigating future risks and planning for sustainability and resilience.

Some of the questions that will be discussed include: Will the new normal drive reshoring or nearshoring? What will be economic impact of the shift away from ‘Just in Time’ delivery? Which countries will be the winners and losers?
