Panel Session
Conference Hall 3.1 (Krasnodar Region)

New innovations in manufacturing technology, shifts in demand and consumption behaviour, coupled with new logistics platforms are reshaping global supply chain strategies. What is the role of Industry 4.0 in redrawing supply chain maps, and who are the players pioneering innovations? Which sectors are going to be most dramatically impacted by potential shifts in global supply chains, and how is this creating new investment opportunities? How is the “One Road – One Belt” initiative changing the transportation of goods and services, and what technological advances are delivering systemic efficiencies? How might new protectionist pressures disrupt global supply chain management?
