Risks Management through Diversification of Markets and Supply Chains (POSTPONED)
Economic growth in the next few decades will take place in those economies that are currently emerging. North Americawill be a dominant but low-growth market. Currency fluctuations will be volatile and challenging to manage. “Black Swan” events will disrupt single-tracked supply chains in developed economies. Thus, diversification of markets and supply chains offer opportunities for volume growths, risks mitigation and a natural currency hedge.
The market growth potential and manufacturing competitiveness in emerging economies, such as China, are accessible to all global businesses. Capturing these opportunities and overcoming the associated challenges will demand board commitment, dedicated resources, global partnerships and cultural adaptation. An effectiveChinastrategy may not involve operations in China, but will require a thorough understanding of the Chinese economic model and market behaviour.
