Global Supply Chains and Small Business Trade Challenges

Wednesday, October 20, 2021 | 10:00 AM
The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations, and Regulations will hold a hybrid hearing titled: “Global Supply Chains and Small Business Trade Challenges.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 A.M. on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Participating members can also join remotely via Zoom.

The COVID-19 pandemic exposed many weaknesses in the global supply chains that small businesses rely on to provide goods and services. As the economy recovers, small firms and consumers alike face product shortages and transportation delays that can hinder a strong recovery. The hearing will allow Members to examine the issues causing disruptions, challenges small entities face in adjusting to the disruption, and steps Congress can take to strengthen supply chain resiliency.
