2022 SUPPLY CHAIN WEEK

BUILDING RESILIENCY TO WEATHER IMPACTS TO GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

Supply Chain Disruptions Continue to Slow Down Economic Growth

ABOUT THE EVENT

Supply chain disruptions continue to push prices higher and slow down economic growth. What’s more, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and a resurgence of Covid-19 in China have added another layer of risk, further making the near-term future of supply chains more uncertain. In addition, geopolitical crises have exacerbated protectionist tendencies, which were already rising since the pandemic’s onset. Therefore, even though pandemic-related disruptions have eased, supply chain disruptions have not significantly improved. In fact, we are unlikely to ever go back to the pre-pandemic supply chain era. Going forward, businesses will continue to redesign their supply chains, making them shorter, more regionalized and embedding greater redundancies. Sohaib Shahid will discuss global supply chains’ challenges and implications for economic growth, inflation, and policymaking.
