Supply Chain 4.0 – Optimising the chain
Presented by Trade Finance Global and Finastra
COVID-19 has shifted global value chains in unprecedented ways which will likely see no new ‘normal’. As behaviours, purchasing trends and trade are completely shifted, this Tradecast will explore how corporates are reacting to new levels of volatility, and ultimately, how technology and innovation could help build an inclusive, resilient global value chain.
This Tradecast analyses the impact of recent events on new behaviours, purchasing trends and trade, as well as the focus on building back recovery and creating sustainable jobs. Be that through public-private partnerships to mobilize finance, creating transparency through marketplaces and B2B platforms or building resilient supply chains, how do we build back a stronger economy which is more inclusive, resilient and sustainable?
