Board Discussion on Supply Chain Recommendations in Response to COVID-19
Representatives from NCAPEC Board Member companies are invited to join a Board Discussion on Supply Chain Recommendations in Response to COVID-19. The objective of this event is to discuss recommendations NCAPEC should convey to APEC governments regarding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on global supply chains. This will also serve as an opportunity to discuss means and mechanisms for engaging with APEC officials including by potentially holding virtual APEC workshops (i.e. the APEC Alliance for Supply Chain Connectivity) and leveraging the APEC Business Advisory Council to expand advocacy efforts beyond U.S. companies. This moderated discussion will feature opening remarks from discussion leaders followed by Q&A and an open dialogue among NCAPEC's Board. We look forward to your contributions.
Potential topics for discussion include, but are not limited to:
Monica Whaley, President, NCAPEC
Sarah Thorn, Senior Director, Global Government Affairs, Walmart
Ralph Carter, Staff Vice President, Regulatory Affairs, FedEx Corporation
Additional discussion leaders to be announced
Date: April 29, 9:00 a.m. EDT
