Uncertainties are building up for global trade as no one knows how the Sino-US trade war is going to start or end. The tension is now not only affecting China manufacturers but also the global supply chain.
If your business is affected by the trade war in one way or another, how can you minimize the impact should the trade war escalate so that you can keep ahead of the competition?
Intertek Hong Kong is now organizing a seminar themed “How Can You Keep Ahead of the Competition under Sino-US Trade War?” on 17 January 2019 to support our clients to learn from the experts and find out the secret of turning risks into opportunities.
In this seminar, we have invited Mr. Roy Delbyck, a bespoke Customs and Trade lawyer, to deliver his keynote speech on relieving the cost burden of consumer products businesses under the trade war. Meanwhile, Dr. Collin Wong, the Associate Dean of the School of Decision Sciences, The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong, is also invited as our honorable keynote speaker to share her insights on the influence of supply chain management due to trade war.
