“We have seen that disruptions to supply chains caused by natural disasters – earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions – and from criminal and terrorist networks seeking to exploit the system or use it as a means of attack can adversely impact global economic growth and productivity. As a nation, we must address the challenges posed by these threats and strengthen our national and international policies accordingly…”
President Barack Obama National Strategy for Global Supply Chain Security, 2012
WBB is proud to host an APICS Supply Chain Risk Management Seminar where industry and government can continue the discussion on how we can strengthen our supply chains against global threats.
