THE WORLD REOPENS
Following several months of inactivity caused by the Covid-19 virus, the Central Asian Productivity Research Center has announced a dynamic return to normalcy. Its first event is a timely conference focusing on PREPARING FOR GLOBAL TRADE DISRUPTION on Friday, June 26, followed by training programs for several foreign delegations arriving in Chicago from Central Asia.
A TIMELY PROFIT-ORIENTED EVENT
You all know the business world is changing, and changing rapidly. The infamous virus has changed much in our lives and that of business, government, and academia.
Many company decision-makers will need to review company policies, practices, and procedures. It will be an even greater challenge for those involved in international business and trade.
