COVID 19 has brought the Supply Chain to the forefront by revealing its strategic role in a globalized economy, both for
governments and companies.
While the onset of the crisis in China highlighted the dependence of Western countries on what has become the world’s workshop,
the extension of the pandemic to all countries generated a simultaneous crisis of supply and demand and led to an unprecedented recession for the entire global economy.
The difficult control of contamination and uncertainty about when a vaccine will be available is weighing on the recovery and the resilience of companies already hard hit by months of health restrictions.
The aim of this Barometer is to inform Supply Chain and Risk managers on the threats ahead and on the solutions to be favored in order to improve their resilience in a crisis context that is likely to last for some time.
