Virtual Talks: Global Supply Chains: An Interconnected World – A Series of Lightning Talks

February 23, 2021 | 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Join us for “Global Supply Chains: An Interconnected World.” This speakers in this series of lightning talks will discuss supply chains and logistics as related to Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. Each speaker will provide information on their region of expertise, while underlining the interdependency of the global system. As the Covid-19 pandemic has shown, shortages or interruptions of the supply chain affect communities around the globe, making an understanding of global supply chains and logistics even more relevant in our contemporary world. Featuring: “The UAE – Its Positioning as a Financial and Logistics Hub” by Howard Leedham, MBE, Consilium World Consulting.
