The past decades have seen the substantial globalization of the world economy. The debate has long begun, however, over whether the world economy has already de-globalized — and whether extraordinary global events such as Covid-19 pandemic have shaken the global economy, creating unprecedented threats to global value chains (GVCs). Based on his paper, “De‐Globalisation? Global Value Chains in the Post‐COVID‐19 Age”, Professor Pol Antràs of Harvard University will examine the key drivers for the future of globalization and how major economies within the GVCs would need to react in the post-pandemic world.
The presentation will be followed by a discussion and Q&A session moderated by Professor Heiwai Tang of the University of Hong Kong.
The AGI Public Policy Webinar Series features leading academics and scholars from universities and think tanks around the world presenting current research on global public-policy issues and discussing their significance and implications for Asia and the world. All are welcome.
Heiwai Tang is Professor of Economics, as well as Associate Director of both the Institute for China and Global Development and the Hong Kong Institute of Economics and Business Strategy at the University of Hong Kong (HKU).View Profile
