The Future of Global Value Chains in East Asia after COVID-19

Read Event Description

Event Date

August 5th 12:00pm - 12:00am EST

Event Location

Livestreamed via Zoom

Event Description

The onset of COVID-19 and the subsequent shortages of necessities such as personal protective equipment have raised questions about global values chains and the idea of just in time production. In response, the United States, Japan, and other governments have called for production to be re-shored to their domestic markets. However, global value chains were under pressure prior to COVID-19 from the U.S.-China trade war and other factors. Please join KEI and the Korea Institute for International Economic Policy for a discussion of how COVID19, the U.S.-China trade war, and other factors will shape global value chains in East Asia.
