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 manufacturing sector constitutes 19% of the country’s total exports in terms of volume. Three industries, mechanical, electrical and metal - known in German by the abbreviation MEM - play a central role in the Swiss economy. About 80% of the products of the MEM industries are exported. The MEM industries, together with related fields, such as information and communication technologies, also develop high performing production facilities for numerous other industrial sectors, including the agricultural, automobile, chemical-pharmaceutical, electronic, food and textile industries.
The industrial sector constitutes 25.6% of the Swiss GDP in 2019 (World Bank).
