Concurrent Session D: “Building the Factory and Supply Chain of the Future”

The pandemic caused disruptions in the supply chain as well as halted production across many sectors worldwide. Lockdowns necessitated closures of production facilities, while reduced demand resulted in over-capacity. At the same time, the pandemic revealed the vulnerability of global supply chains, with China temporarily closing down its economy and the rest of the world restricting flows of goods.

Malaysia’s manufacturing sector was badly hit in 2020 and though it is recovering in 2021,are there practices that can be implemented to enable it to better cope with supply and demand shocks? This session explores the challenges of the manufacturing sector and its supply chains, and the need to build resilience.
