Expert Webinar - Turning National Catastrophes into Local Opportunity
Expert Webinar - Turning National Catastrophes into Local Opportunity

The trade war and the COVID crisis have proven the value of shorter supply chains. Retail stores are closing, often permanently. The best solution to strengthen existing local manufacturers and provide the good jobs needed for social and economic stability for companies, minorities, and displaced retail workers is to reshore manufacturing.

This webinar will provide the tools to help your organizations guide the work back to your region from China and other countries and to turn these critical issues into opportunities for your region.
