Based on his work in Global Value Chain Development Report 2023 and the recent book Interconnected Worlds (Stanford University Press, June 2022), Professor Henry Yeung shared with us some key empirical observations on the highly contested and politicized nature of electronics global production networks since the US-China trade war and the Covid-19 pandemic. He examined the most significant implications for macro-regional development in the post-pandemic 2020s in the areas of continual significance of East Asia as a major centre and end market; pro-ecosystem approach to capability development, supply ecosystems, and market access in regions; and strategic partnership with technology leaders towards building national and regional resilience.
The seminar is supported by the APEC Study Center.
