Learn about supply chain challenges at World Trade Council dinner

The World Trade Council of Wichita and the Center for International Business Advancement will host a dinner program at 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8 on “Understanding and Managing Global Supply Chains in our Turbulent Times.”

The World Trade Council of Wichita (WTCouncil) offers a monthly opportunity to discuss and understand global issues that impact business and trade in Kansas, the Midwest and the United States.  Currently, few issues affect businesses worldwide as much as supply-chain fluctuations. The bulk of these global supply chains have baked into them the opportunities and costs that emerging markets afford. Consequently, mathematical modeling and analysis, though useful,  offer limited lenses to classify risks and aid in planning.  The dinner program this month will shed more light on how the aerospace sector, central to the KS economy,  is handling supply chains and unexpected turbulence in global environments, with takeaways for the regional and global economies. 

Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to attend. The WTCouncil will subsidize WSU students’ attendance, networking hour, and dinner. The presentation alone (no dinner or networking hour) is free to all. Attendance is limited, and reservations are required.

Spirit AeroSystems, a long-term Board member of the World Trade Council of Wichita, will lead this dinner program on global supply chains. Please send an email to wtcouncil@wichita.edu and copy vxrangaraju@shockers.wichita.edu for more information.
