Manufacturing Committee: Operational Resilience in Manufacturing
Supply chains and business risk landscapes are subject to shifting geopolitical tensions and market risks. Thailand is no exception to this, with both risk and opportunity present in a shifting business environment. Covid-19 taught businesses many lessons on how to be flexible, adaptive, and able to bounce back from uncertainty and shocks, lessons which hold true as we emerge from the pandemic and face new challenges.
This presentation will examine the geopolitical factors that are impacting global supply chains and what manufacturing businesses and other sectors have learned during Covid-19 to ensure operations, people, and reputation can be maintained during uncertainty. This includes setting organizational direction, risk awareness, governance, and developing an adaptive capacity to ensure a secure, resilient, and sustainable business.
