Abstract

Supply chain scenario planning – Coronavirus synopsis questions
Supply chain resilience, contingencies, and business continuity plans

Historic case study of high dependency on the region and the inappropriate spread of manufacturing load. Contingency planning to address business continuity frameworks more serious, rather than a tick box exercise.

Classic case study – Will China prove to the world that it can catch up on speed even in the most difficult time too?

Organic growth and units in their local regions by onshore or near-shore operations, hence more bilateral agreements in international trade import and export.

Operationally weak businesses/brands will vanish. Time to discover or develop diversified value chains as now supply chains will compete against other supply chains.

Scrutiny and high demand for health standards and reforms in businesses.
