Event Details

Over the years, China has been the manufacturing base for many multinational companies thanks to the world factory's abundance of cheap labor and world class infrastructure. As China moved up the value chain, companies have gradually moved their low end production lines to ASEAN markets. However, China remains an important market as the world's largest consumer economy in purchasing power parity; multinational companies have adopted "In China, For China" strategy to serve the local market.

Companies have been hit hard by two perfect storms: 1) decoupling pressure as a result of US-China trade tension and 2) the COVID-19 pandemic that has disrupted global supply chains. More recently, China's prolonged zero COVID-19 policy has put more pressure on the business operation. According to AmCham China Flash Survey on COVID-19 business impact conducted in May, 61% of respondents express that the omicron outbreak is challenging supply chains due to disruptions to transportation and shipping networks.

Is US-China decoupling in supply chain underway? To what extent has China's zero COVID policy impacted global supply chains? Will or has local Chinese governments put in place policies to alleviate supply chain disruption?

Please join this 6th session of China Insight Series as trade expert, Frank Lavin, and supply chain specialist, Jarrod Ward discuss the future role of China in the global supply chain.
