As the petrochemicals industry moves into recovery mode from COVID-19, Mark said firms will look at who their right #supplychain partners are. "They might create new partners if they think the old ones are too risky," he said. "They'll rethink relations across the value chain."With supply chains coming under greater scrutiny, transforming the supply chain into a tool for creating shareholder value is an art form that extends its scope and transforms it digitally. The presence of a hyperconnected global supply chain – along with unexpected risks like the global pandemic – have pushed the CFO’s office into a much more strategic role.
