As China’s industrial output grows at unprecedented speed, the country’s supply chain infrastructure becomes an increasingly serious issue. For managers accustomed to lean operations, old lessons must be re-learned about the consequences when supply variability is a fact of life. In response, governmental and private actions underway are designed to offer relief – at least in the long run. This presentation will trace the roots of the current supply chain infrastructure from earliest days of the People’s Republic of China to the present, with forecasts of what’s ahead.
