This webinar will provide insights into the impact of COVID-19 on global supply chains while looking forward to how the new Canada-US-Mexico Agreement can help local companies mitigate the risks of similar disruptions in the future.

Brought to you by the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade in partnership with the WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation and the Windsor Transportation Club.

COVID-19 has made businesses dependent on global sourcing face hard choices in crisis management amid supply chain disruptions. Businesses have begun planning to mitigate the risks of similar disruptions in future, but are confronted with other questions that have no easy answers:

• Should you broaden your supplier choices, or do more local or near-shore sourcing?
• How much inventory of raw materials, sub-assemblies and finished products should you stock to tide you over the current crisis or future crises?
• What impact (if any) will the Canada-US-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) have as a mechanism to avoid future global supply chain disruptions?
• What can you do to be ready for CUSMA and are there opportunities for taking advantage of the new CUSMA?

Please join us for this webinar, moderated by Steve Salmons, President and CEO of Port Windsor, as Christian Sivière (See bio below) presents supply chain global insights with practical advice for local companies.
