The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented global crisis, including notable disruptions of international trade and supply chains, which have presented new challenges and risks to companies doing business internationally. The pandemic also exposed vulnerabilities in supply chain infrastructure, such as a lack of diversity in suppliers, weaknesses in offshore sources of supply and insufficient contractual remedies to deal interruptions in the supply of key products and services, among others. What should companies be doing now to protect their operations, continue to navigate the uncertainties caused by the pandemic and prepare for a post-COVID world?
Join Baker McKenzie for two live webinars, in coordination with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). One will provide a wide perspective on strategic supply chain restructuring in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the other will dive deep into key considerations for strengthening and restructuring food-system supply chains. Below you will find details on each of them.
