About this talk

Join Dun & Bradstreet to hear about the economic impact of the coronavirus and how to mitigate disruption. As the novel coronavirus spreads outside of China and countries around the world try to protect their citizens from the outbreak, the full impact of the virus is becoming more apparent. Dun & Bradstreet’s supply chain data and proprietary analytics confirm that at least 51,000 companies around the world have at least one direct (Tier 1) supplier in the impacted regions of China, Italy, and South Korea. That number increases to five million companies globally when second tier (Tier 2) suppliers in the impacted region are included. Data and analytics are key to understanding how your own supply chain could be disrupted. Businesses that understand the true impact to their own operations, and act proactively to diversify their portfolio of suppliers and limit dependencies, could see far less interruption to their operations than those that don’t. In this webinar, experts from Dun & Bradstreet in the UK, US, and China will explore: 1. How the precautions taken to prevent the spread of the virus are affecting local and global economies, as well as business operations, as organisations struggle to navigate uncertainty. 2. The impact on businesses’ supply chains and how you can identify and mitigate risk beyond your direct suppliers to minimise disruption. 3. How business operations are resuming in China, with a look at the local economic situation.
