The COVID-19 health crisis multiplied as a major economic crisis due to its devastating impact on the business community. Travel restrictions across international borders, implementation of social distancing practices, and lock-downs completely revolutionized the way businesses used to operate in the modern society. The main aim of this book chapter is to examine the global supply chain disruptions during the COVID-19 health crisis. This book chapter argues that most of the impact on the supply chain of the Pacific Island Countries was felt as a result of the declining role of China in providing raw materials for further processing in a timely and reliable manner. To operate successfully in the midst of the crisis, businesses had to design sustainable operating models, such as, 3D Technology Design to meet up to the needs of the customers.
