Reimagining Supply Chains in the Age of GeoeconomicsVIEW EVENT DETAILS
How can we align our economic interests to a new era of global competition?
Geopolitical tensions in the Indo-Pacific have undoubtedly spilled over into the economic arena. As global rivalries intensify in the region, governments have begun to rely more heavily on economic tools to advance their strategic agendas. Trade strong-arming, economic sanctions, and a renewed focus on “trusted” supply lines and self-reliance all highlight that geoeconomics – the application of economic instruments for geopolitical ends – has become an inevitable reality for our region.
As a middle power with an open economy, Australia’s strategic interests are deeply intertwined with the risks and opportunities associated with geoeconomics and changes to supply chains.
How can we adapt our investment and trade strategies to match this new reality? How are supply chains adapting to these new realities? What tools do policy makers and companies need to navigate an era of heightened economic competition and uncertainty? And how are other countries in the region, especially Southeast Asia, affected by – and responding to – this new era?
Asia Society is pleased to host and introduce a new ASPI interactive tool that maps out the foreign investment and supply chain policies of 17 economies in the Indo-Pacific with Wendy Cutler, Vice President at the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) in conversation with Jeffrey Wilson, Research Director of Perth USAsia Centre and Mukund Narayanamurti, General Manager - ASEAN Austrade.
