AmCham Shanghai's Legal Committee and Tax Committee invites you to join a presentation and panel discussion on Adapting Supply Chain Operations to the Current Environment on Tuesday, September 10 from 10:00-11:30 at the AmCham Shanghai Conference Room.

The escalating and prolonged trade dispute, currency exchange volatility, tensions in Hong Kong, and the already active landscape for the 2020 US elections have collectively caused manufacturing enterprises to rethink their supply chain on both a short- and long-term basis. What generally started as a debate within multinational companies as to how to best mitigate exposures related to these factors has now turned into actual shifts in supply chains across a variety of industries. With a movement of functions, risks, sourcing, and various other supply chain elements comes a host of legal and tax issues that require careful analysis and navigation. Join us for a discussion of issues to be considered when making changes to a supply chain as well as a panel discussion on how companies are coping with these changes in practice.
