Meyer, Unkovic & Scott International Law Partner Dennis Unkovic, along with Dave Iwinski, Jr., of Blue Water Growth LLC, will discuss the ramifications of the COVID-19 virus on the global supply chain.

They will detail the initial impact at the center of the virus in China, along with the short-term effects on business and the long-term impact on trade and global supply chains. Unkovic and Iwinski will demonstrate how a cascading effect starting in China will magnify several existing critical macro-trends within China that will ripple outwards and dramatically affect supply, revenue, earnings, and market for a significant range of global companies.

Learn what steps your company should be taking now to help you prepare for the potential problems the supply chain will have on your production schedule and the alternatives you may want to consider moving forward when choosing vendors in your supply chain.
