The Future of Globalization

Over the last few decades, globalization has been a powerful force raising incomes and lifting millions out of poverty. But in our interconnected world, the risk of contagion – both financial and medical – is greater than ever. In 2008, a financial crisis ravaged the global economy. Now the Corona virus has sent the world’s economy reeling. Even before the pandemic, populism and nationalism emerged as a potent challenge to the global order. Now, international cooperation is key to solving this current crisis. Can we revolutionize the ways in which we collaborate across borders in order to move forward towards a more stable future?

Protecting Your Supply Chain During COVID-19

Your supply chain acts as the circulatory system of your business and is equally as complex and can easily make or break your business. COVID-19 has exposed many vulnerabilities of organizations worldwide during this pandemic, especially those with a high dependence on China as a supplier.  In this webinar we’ll focus on new supply chain technologies that are emerging beyond the linear supply-chain model and towards end-to-end visibility, collaboration, agility, and optimization by utilizing innovative tools such as digital supply networks (DSNs), A.I., 5G and other applications to help ensure management of supply chain disruption during a global pandemic.
