On June 24th at 3 pm (UTC+2) the Polish Economic Institute will review the conclusions of the latest report “Trade routes after the COVID-19 pandemic” during a special video conference.
The COVID-19 pandemic involves serious repercussions for the world economy whose depth and duration are still difficult to assess. It is not only in the short term – in the form of a global slump but also as long-term adjustment processes of a systemic and structural nature which have already begun. Areas particularly affected by the consequences of the pandemic include global trade and the system of international production links within global value chains. Our report shows four possible scenarios, how the relocation of production from China will change global supply chains and which countries/ regions can potentially benefit the most.
After the brief presentation of the report the discussion with distinguish experts is planned. In the discussion we will have:
- Simon J. Evenett – Professor of International Trade and Economic Development, University of St.Gallen;
- Nadeem Ilahi – Senior Regional Resident Representative Office for Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe, International Monetary Fund;
- Zhi Wang – Research Professor of Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University (TBC).
