The Seventh China Conference in Chengdu organized by CSCMP and CDI addressed key trends shaping the country's role in the global supply chain.

The Seventh CSCMP China Conference, co-organized by CSCMP and the China (Shenzhen) Development Institute (CDI), held in Chengdu on September 8-9, 2016, addressed the complicated challenges related to managing logistics and supply chain in China as well as the country's rapidly growing market potential and business opportunities.

Experts, supply chain thought leaders, and business executives from more than 10 countries and CSCMP roundtables gathered to share their views and insights with 300 participants in the conference, which focused on supply chain mega-trends in China. Under the theme "Supply Chain Management Plus: The Next Big Thing in China," the conference covered topics such as China's One Belt and One Road Initiative; innovative business models; and the application of technologies such as Big Data, cloud computing, the Internet of Things, and new energy solutions. Additionally, 27 companies were presented with the 2016 Award for Excellent Supply Chain Management Companies and Best Practices in China.
