EMC / BCEDA Briefing Industry Pulse: COVID-19 Impacts and Recovery Steps for Manufacturers
Date: Tuesday August 25th, 2020 Time: 1:00 PM PDT
The global COVID-19 pandemic has decimated our economy and has caused severe disruptions to all facets of life and business. In the early stages, much was unknown and the first reaction to contain the situation was to shut down or curtail activities and contact.
The nature of these impacts on business: from local staffing, safety and physical distancing concerns, to maintaining the ability to meet customer needs, to more global supply chain and export concerns needs to be understood in order to respond effectively. This has been especially challenging for manufacturers.
Where Do We Go from Here?
Over the past several months, EMC has reached out to manufacturers in every province, asking short ‘INDUSTRY PULSE’ questions about the current state of the sector and the impacts this pandemic is having on their business. Response has been tremendous!
Join us for an in-depth briefing on the issues affecting BC’s manufacturing sector, the related impacts throughout Canada and a discussion on the future steps manufacturers firms are seeking to tackle:
