Unraveling Supply Chain Complexity in the Greater Bay Area

Challenges and Opportunities in Embracing Digital Transformation

Through infrastructure connectivity, the Greater Bay Area (GBA) is strengthening its importance as a global logistics hub.  With large integrated market and diverse industry offering, supply chain complexity in the region is expected to grow exponentially, compelling the need for faster and more efficient movement of goods/services, labor/talent, capital and information.  How does such a need create challenges and opportunities in supply chain management?  Taking advantage of the GBA’s acceleration in innovation, how could companies work in sync with advanced digital technologies (e.g., IoT and AI) to unravel supply chain complexity?  Join us to explore the future trend.

Looking forward to meeting you at the SHARP Forum.  For further inquiries please contact: GBAsharpforum@gmail.com

* Remarks: Attendees without proper registration will not be entertained. Please present your student/staff card or business card at the the reception.
