Supply Chains: A Shifting Indo-Pacific
The Indo-Pacific region is witnessing a dynamic shift in supply chain movement in response to a number of factors including, the COVID-19 pandemic, geo-political tensions and other disruptions. As a result, companies are actively weighing the benefits of diversifying their supply chains, as well as reshoring, to build resiliency and reduce overreliance on a single market. Although China continues to be the world’s manufacturing powerhouse, other economies in the Indo-Pacific region are quickly emerging as attractive, alternative destinations for industrial operations. Governments have been taking note of these movements and are implementing measures to attract new investments.

On September 15th, the Asia Society Policy Institute is releasing a new interactive web tool: “Supply Chains: A Shifting Indo-Pacific,” which maps out the concrete policy measures that 17 economies in the region are taking to improve their investment climates, incentivize the movement of supply chains, and, in some cases, encourage the reshoring of overseas businesses.

In order to better understand these developments and associated challenges, the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) will be convening a panel of experts to explore these questions and more:

• How have supply chain diversification efforts impacted foreign direct investment trends in the Indo-Pacific region and what are the prospects for further shifts?
• Which economies in particular are benefitting from shifting supply chains and why?
• What steps are governments in the region implementing to attract investment? Where do trade agreements fit in?
• What strategies are private firms implementing to build resiliency and further diversify their supply chains in light of growing disruptions?
