The COVID-19 pandemic, trade tensions, and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have significantly disrupted global supply chains, reverberating through commodity markets and trade channels, threatening food and energy security, and weighing on sustainable economic recovery.
While the world continues to move toward improved growth, different economies are rebounding at different rates in the face of today’s global supply chain challenges. Building supply chain resilience is vital to enhancing the economic outlook for all, particularly in trade-reliant developing Asia and the Pacific.
The virtual 2022 ADBI Annual Conference will focus on fostering resilient global supply chains. It will discuss current supply chain conditions and possible research-based next steps for boosting trade and transportation, mitigating financial and climate change risks, and strengthening food and energy security.
