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 constitutes approximately 29% of GDP and manufacturing employs nearly 24% of the workforce. Japan has traditionally been a world leader with its automated production processes. On the whole, the industry has benefited from innovative technology- including the chemical, aircraft and software sectors. Japan ranks among the world's largest and most technologically advanced producers of electronic equipment, machine tools, steel and nonferrous metals, ships, chemicals, textiles and processed foods. The production value of the food industry ranked third among manufacturing industries (after electric and transport machinery).
