Professor Wong will be speaking to us about the Cold War between China and United States. He will discuss how it impacts supply chain and the global economy, including tariffs. The outcome of the upcoming G20 meeting could have a global impact that may require companies look at their own global supply chain post-Dec. 2018 G20 meeting. If there is a deal companies may need to consider meaningful changes to their supply chains in order to compete on a global scale.
