Statement Comments
The COVID-19 pandemic has permanently changed how companies should think about business strategy. Strongly Agree “The COVID-19 pandemic exposed the fragility of cross-border supply chains. Previous natural disasters such as the Kobe and Fukushima earthquakes and the Thailand floods of 2011 affected particular industries. By contrast, the COVID-19 pandemic cut off supplies across all industries. All businesses (not only manufacturers) must rethink their just-in-time strategies. ”
