Emerging with Supply Chain Strength Webinar
The Economy, Inland Southern CA &
the State of Logistics & Manufacturing
Friday, Feb 19th @ 12 Noon PST
We are excited to kick off a webinar series “Emerging with Supply Chain Strength” to discuss the economy, the Inland Southern CA and the state of manufacturing and supply chain.
COVID has created vast disruption and opportunity throughout the region. Although manufacturing and supply chain were considered essential and fared better than many industries, there were many impacts with customers, suppliers, new rules and regulations with how to manage the workforce and many more changing conditions to address. E-commerce went through the roof, significantly impacting the IE and supply chain, both positively and negatively.
The Inland Empire Economic Partnership supports efforts in job creation, leadership infrastructure, and regional advocacy for Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. The IEEP works closely with business and government leaders to make the Inland Empire a great place to live, work and invest. From a supply chain perspective, the IEEP has been involved in a significant study by Brookings that relates to the future of manufacturing and supply chain in the IE, and how the technology transformation will affect our industries and the labor force. The IEEP also partners closely with the Southern CA logistics scene (ports, railroads, transportation, etc.).
Tune in to hear the economists talk about what’s coming, the impact on the IE, what’s happening in the region and the future of manufacturing and logistics.Emerging with Supply Chain Strength, IEEP, Inland Empire Economic Partnership, Inland Southern CA, supply chain, webinar
