Due to the Covid-19 pandemic conditions, the scientific conference was held face-to-face and online form. At the conference, 09 speeches were presented, revolving around the situation of businesses affected by the Covid-19 pandemic; solutions to restore and develop production and business of enterprises in the Mekong Delta after the Covid-19 pandemic, and propose policies to stabilize people's lives and restore local socio-economic development. Chang Gung University, Taiwan, shared the experiences of Taiwanese companies on the policy of dividing production plants and building factories near the area to supply production materials to the consumer market to reduce shipping costs.

Dr. Pornthipa Ongkunaruk emphasized that frozen shrimp is one of Thailand's major exports. This study has exposed a supply chain of frozen shrimp products, a large-scale producer in Central Thailand. Our objective was to study the current supply chain of a frozen shrimp processing plant in Samut Sakhon province and propose recommendations to improve efficiency in each operation, especially in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. First, we analyzed the company's business process using the integrated term for functional model (IDEFO) to investigate the stakeholders of the supply chain and the frozen shrimp producer's business processes. After analysis, we identified issues and suggested ways to improve efficiency such as risk management, especially for shrimp and labor shortage. Supplier relationships need was established along with contracts, forecast prices, and shrimp demand to optimize procurement. Workers need to learn multi-skill and apply minimalist manufacturing to increase productivity. Finally, digitization should be completely transformed and centralized information establishment to reduce time, increase accuracy and share data with partners. This presentation had practical significance for the frozen shrimp industry in the Mekong Delta.
