Webinar

The Business Impact of the Coronavirus
and How to Safeguard Your Supply Chain

Join Brian Alster – GM, Third-Party Risk & Compliance, Markus Kuger – Chief Economist and Andrew Wu – GM, China & Hong Kong to hear about the economic impact of the coronavirus and how to mitigate disruption.

As the novel coronavirus spreads outside of China and countries around the world try to protect their citizens from the outbreak, the full impact of the virus is becoming more apparent.

Data and analytics are key to understanding how your own supply chain could be disrupted. Businesses that understand the true impact to their own operations, and act proactively to diversify their portfolio of suppliers and limit dependencies, could see far less interruption to their operations than those that don’t.

  • Monday 16 March
  • 14:00 hrs CET
  • How the precautions taken to prevent the spread of the virus are affecting local and global economies, as well as business operations, as organisations struggle to navigate uncertainty.
  • The impact on businesses’ supply chains and how you can identify and mitigate risk beyond your direct suppliers to minimise disruption.
  • How business operations are resuming in China, with a look at the local economic situation.
