Watch: Middle East and North Africa supply chains – the route to recovery (EP.3)


Watch this Livestream for the latest insight on vehicle demand, production and trade across Middle East and North Africa automotive supply chains, plus insights with General Motors’ head of purchasing and supply chain for the Middle East, Sulaiman Pallak. 

Prior to the global pandemic, the Middle East and North African (MENA) regions were experiencing steady growth and attracting significant investment from global OEMs, tier suppliers and logistics service providers, creating new production and supply centres, trading zones and shipping routes. Today, MENA has been hard hit by the coronavirus crisis and oil price shocks, however its potential remains significant, whether Morocco as a manufacturing hub for Europe and Africa, strong vehicle demand and trade in the Gulf, and a population and economy highly attuned to digital technology. The crisis could even accelerate the region’s path toward becoming a key trade hub in the automotive landscape.

This MENA-focused episode shares insight, data and forecasts from our business intelligence unit, Automotive from Ultima Media, and explores what challenges need to be overcome if the region is to meet its potential.

We are joined by special guest Sulaiman Pallak, who leads GM’s purchasing and supply chain across the region, for exclusive insight into the carmaker’s changing supply chain and logistics across the region.
