The same survey also showed that 40% of the respondents indicated that the upstream supply chain operation was completely interrupted or severely affected due to the inability to obtain raw materials and upstream products; 35% of the respondents located in the downstream of the supply chain said that the delivery of finished products was seriously affected. impact or complete disruption.
