Riccardo Benussi, Head of European Business Development at Dezan Shira & Associates, participated in the 5th Annual Manufacturers’ Forum on September 25th in Frankfurt, Germany this year.

5th Annual Manufacturers’ Forum of the OWC, Frankfurt

With the impacts of the ongoing Trade War and COVID-19 on business globally, Riccardo discussed commercial implications of localization, best practices, and what course of action an SME should start implementing, with around 55 leading representatives of manufacturing companies and professionals. 

To what extent has the trade war impacted the automotive industry, an industry very dear to German manufacturers and Chinese consumers?  

How to maintain sustainability in uncertain times?

Which supply chain segments could be relocated to Vietnam, as an example, to enter the rest of the Asian market? 

Riccardo had the pleasure to highlight these topics and more in his presentation, as well as during roundtable discussions, at the annual Manufacturer’s Forum.
