Take Back Manufacturing 2017

June 20, 2017
531 Atkinson Ave Thornhill, ON L4J 8L7

The globalized manufacturing approach with efficient supply chains has been the business norm for the last 3 decades, but now many experts predict a change in direction toward sustainable supply chains, LEAN business practices, Balanced Sourcing involving reshoring and more localized and significantly more nationalistic trade blocs.

This will be the next business initiative to understand and embrace.

Our presenter will explain:

Why sustainable supply chain concepts are the latest global business trend, and how social-political events now unfolding may reverse current globalization

Why these more nationalistic politics are now in vogue and may reverse 30 years of poor global management and low prosperity.

How Canada will stack up in this future of nationalistic and sustainable trading blocs and how political will, policies, legislations and national competitive factors will need to change.
