For the resources for businesses on managing the manufacturing and the supply chain risk due to the outbreak of the Covid19 pandemic, please consult the report COVID-19: Managing supply chain risk and disruption (Deloitte Canada, 2020), as well as the insights on COVID-19: How to fortify your supply chain (Kearney, 2020).
The World Economic Forum's COVID Action Platform provides useful information on the latest strategic trends regarding COVID-19 implications for businesses, including manufacturing and supply systems. The report Outbreak Readiness and Business Impact (World Economic Forum in collaboration with the Harvard Global Health Institute) offers insights on handling coronavirus by businesses and strategies for effective response and resilience.

The industrial sector (around 37.4% of GDP in 2019 according to the World Bank) has long been the driving force behind growth. Electronics (semi-conductors, electronic equipment and telecommunications equipment) is the leading manufacturing activity, followed by the production of audio-video equipment, and office equipment. The manufacturing sector represents more than 80% of exports. Exporting industries, especially for electronic and electrical products, chemicals, and plastic and wood products, represent more than 70% of the index of manufacturing production. The manufacturing sector oriented towards the domestic market, which represents about 28% of the industry, includes mainly the manufacturing of metal products, products linked to building, foodstuffs and transport equipment. The mining industry (around 7% of GDP) exploits tin, oil, copper, iron ore, natural gas and bauxite.
