Global value chains have taken a hit recently due to the COVID-19 pandemic. From the closing down economic activity across the regions as well as throughout the world to the disruptions in supply chains within national borders. The World Bank's Global Economic Prospects baseline forecast envisions a 5.2 percent contraction in global GDP in 2020 - the deepest global recession in decades.
Join us as we discuss these disruptions in the supply chains, both locally and regionally, and take a look at what's in store ahead if we are to successfully navigate these current disruptions.
Mr. T.H. Lim, Managing Director UPS Malaysia and Singapore will be giving his overview of the supply chain globally and in Malaysia, the challenges business face today; around cash flows, shift to e-commerce, labor and inventory shortage, as well as, how to pivot the business model to optimize the supply chain.
The following presentation will be conducted by Dr. Shardul Phadnis, Associate Professor and Director of Research at Malaysia Institute for Supply Chain Innovation (MISI). Dr. Shardul will be sharing the latest findings from two MISI studies (conducted between April 2020 and now) that examine current impact and response to the pandemic by different companies and the future outlook on supply chain disruptions.
