Event description
HOW WILL THE SUPPLY CHAIN RESPOND

About this Event

The automotive industry is in a period of exciting yet risky transition to an electric future. To succeed, the supply chain will need to aim for much deeper indigenous integration, supported by the existing high level of innovation, and continuous skills re-training. To paraphrase Dickens, we could say, “these are the best of times, and the worst of times”. The dinner will try to decide which.
