In the second half of 2022, the disruptions from Covid 19 are still affecting global trade. As forecasts predict that the global economy will grow by 3% this year, although projections show this will ease to 2.9% next year, the inflation and the Russia-Ukraine conflict are increasing the risk of a sharp slowdown or recession. All these non-Covid 19 factors also disrupt the global economy and supply chains. In an international poll of CEOs of large manufacturers, 25% identify supply chain risk as the greatest threat to their organization's growth.* Some 68% declare they will take major steps to ensure supply chain resiliency in further global lockdowns and travel restrictions.**
