Building Resilient Supply Chains: Enhancing Cooperation with India, Vietnam, and other Emerging Markets
Please join the CSIS Economics Program, Ambassador Marc E. Knapper, and officials and experts from the United States, Japan, Vietnam, and India for a conversation on the role major emerging markets can play in supply chain resiliency initiatives.
Beginning with the collapse of US-China relations, and accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic, building resilient, secure supply chains have become the economic security policy issue de jour. As possible alternative production platforms for multinational firms looking to move operations out of China, emerging markets will play a central role in any effective supply chain resiliency strategy. A recent CSIS Economics Program report, found that three major emerging markets—India, Vietnam, and Indonesia—are all attempting to take advantage of this new focus on supply chain resilience, while (to varying degrees) balancing the economic security risks posed by China’s rise. This public event will bring together officials from Washington, key allied capitals, and emerging markets to discuss the role of emerging markets in building resilient supply chains, where there has been success, and where barriers to deeper economic integration remain.
