Modernizing Global Supply Chains

Monday, May 1, 2023
02:30 PM - 03:30 PM PDT
Beverly Hilton - Whittier

The COVID-19 pandemic and the rapidly evolving geopolitical landscape revealed profound fragilities in cross-border supply chains, which pushed them to the forefront of global concerns. Widespread and sustained disruptions opened a rare opportunity to reconsider investment strategies, modernize supply chain management, and reform the archaic paper-based system on which international trade still depends. How will companies simultaneously increase supply chain resilience and sustainability? What are the benefits of the digitization of international trade and what efforts are underway to accelerate wholesale adoption? What role could an improved trade finance ecosystem assume in creating new opportunities for SMEs and emerging-market economies?
