A supply chain is the end to end process of creating products and delivering them to customers.

The Committee is aware of the current challenges that business and industry are facing. Some of these are short-term issues like access to fuel and raw materials to make products. Others are longer-term issues, such staff shortages, or having people with the skills needed by business in the parts of the country where there are vacancies.
