The U.S.-China trade conflict has not only had a direct impact on businesses, consumers, and trade, but has also caused the adjustment and restructuring of global supply chains. In addition, the U.S. government has taken measures to restrict the flow of technology into China, and to prevent information and national security from being threatened by its rival. Although the U.S. and China signed a phase one trade deal on January 15, 2020, trade tensions and technology competition between the two countries will continue to affect the operations of multinational enterprises and the global economy.
As they say: when it rains, it pours. The recent COVID-19 outbreak has infected more than 4,000,000 and caused nearly 280,000 deaths worldwide as of early in May. The pandemic has severely affected several industries, including global transportation, logistics, tourism, and catering. This in turn has triggered a stock market crash, material shortages, and delays in cargo shipments, among other effects. For industrial supply chains and the global economy, the virus has made a bad situation even worse.
Event co-organizers AmCham Taipei and InvesTaiwan are honored to invite Emeritus Professor Tain-Jy Chen of the Department of Economics at National Taiwan University to share his insights regarding the current uncertain economic and trade situation, as well as future prospects for the Taiwanese economy. Professor Chen previously served as president of the Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research (CIER). He also served two stints as minister of the National Development Council, during which time he led Taiwan through the global financial crisis.
