Global supply chains are among the biggest economic victims of the coronavirus epidemic, and the worst is yet to come.

And most importantly the long-term — Will the virus mark the end of China as the “world’s factory?” Supply chains will never be immune to disruption, so what are the smartest strategies to reduce companies’ supply chain costs and risks?
