Why supply chain issues have not gone away

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and regions around the world went into lockdown, once-predictable supply chains became unreliable. More than a year later, supply chain issues have persisted, due to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as production issues, port congestion and labour shortages. For example, Nike is one of the many companies dealing with supply chain issues, and said it's now taking 80 days to get goods from Asia to North America, twice the amount of time it took pre-pandemic.

On this episode of Crisis Management, Alicja Siekierska and the Public Policy Forum’s Sean Speer discuss ongoing supply chain issues and how businesses and policymakers need to approach this persisting problem.
