An efficient supply chain makes the world go faster and smoother. The past few years have clearly brought this fact back under the spotlight.

Supply chain discussions have now become a key feature in every boardroom. The right supply-chain decisions can do wonders in enhancing an organisation's bottom line and creating synergies amongst suppliers, consumers and businesses. Moreover, an effective supply-chain process can add real value to a country’s trade and economic growth.

Currently, Pakistan faces a number of challenges on the economic front. Its low foreign exchange reserves have hindered the inward supply of some commodities with the government focused on essentials to keep the current account deficit number within the required range. Devastating floods added to economic woes, and required agility on the part of all businesses to supply foods, medicines, tents along with other essentials as rescue efforts remained under way. Along with high inflation already burdening masses, it is up to lean business operations to help the government tackle economic challenges.

Amid this backdrop, Business Recorder has partnered with Maersk to arrange a panel of experts to talk about supply chain, and how Pakistan can tackle operational issues moving forward.

The roundtable will take place on October 27, 2022, and starts at 3pm at the Mövenpick Hotel, Karachi.
