         Eric Grimsby , Executive Principal of MIT and Jussi Sherfey, Director of MIT Transportation and Logistics Center attended the press conference on 7th, March. Jussi mentioned that logistics and supply chain management is a weak spot for developing countries. For a product, the logistics and supply chain management accounts for 7%-8% of its price in developed countries whereas that rate can rise  above 20% in developing countries. Thus by lowering the cost of logistics, Chinese products are allowed to lower their prices by 15% at most which is of great importance in improving Chinese enterprises’ competitiveness and boosting China’s development. At present, there is a shortfall of about 1million supply chain management talents in China
