COVID-19 AND ITS CONSEQUENCES
The fact is that the pandemic has shifted us towards a new reality. The world has never been so aware of the true meaning of globalization and its implications. What had always been viewed a positive trend towards a single world, for innovating, conducting business, harnessing resources and connecting countries and cultures has shown us its grimmest side.
The health crisis which has spread at unprecedented speed, not only cost the lives of thousands, but in its wake it has crippled industries, economies and countries as we could never have imagined. It has laid bare the brittleness of our economy and the world’s general reliance, particularly Europe’s, on China as a producer of goods, leaving us at that country’s mercy and with limited scope for reaction.
Market recovery promises to be painful and difficult, with activity resuming slowly and unevenly among countries, with unavoidable consequences stemming from the lack of a clear and reliable line for evolution.
Now we must approach this situation with a positive mindset, aware of the need to adapt to the changes and seek innovative solutions for our markets and customers as the key to recovering our business activities.
Will we be able to learn from the mistakes made to improve our production and procurement processes? Only time will tell
