The Center for Transportation & Logistics will be hosting a roundtable focusing on “Global Supply Chains amid Social, Political, and Technological Upheaval”. The event will be held on Wednesday May 24, 2017 at MIT.
This is the second of six roundtables to be held worldwide by the MIT Global SCALE Network. The purpose of these roundtables is to stimulate and learn from a selected group of industry experts about the implications of the current socio-technical developments in the global business environment—e.g., rise of populism, purported revolution of Industry 4.0, shift of economic growth towards Asia, etc.—on supply chains, and how companies should compete in the environment of the heightened level of uncertainty. The insights from the six roundtables will be compiled and published to a wide global community of supply chain leaders. We expect that these voices would be heard at the highest echelons of global decision making, and hopefully, influence the policy-making.
