Covid-19 is not the only factor potentially driving the regionalisation of production though. Many observers have suggested that the recent rise of trade barriers across the world – most prominently between the United States and China – marked the end of globalisation as we know it a few years ago.

Supply chain management, is a powerful new source of competitive advantage for many organisations. It integrates manufacturing, operations, purchasing, transportation and the distribution into a seamless process. Regional sourcing is helping manufacturers save time and money; with that in mind, savvy suppliers are moving closer to the end users of their products.

Section B of the chapter describes the most salient features of Asia’s emergence as the world’s leading exporter. Section C discusses the nature of bilateral trade links in the region and of deeper vertical integration. Section D focuses on the potential implications of vertical trade integration in Asia for the effect of exchange rates and shifts in global demand on export competitiveness and external surpluses. The Economic Prosperity Initiative is supporting the competitiveness of agricultural, manufacturing and service value chains in part by supporting cross-cutting areas that can have a real and immediate impact on the competitiveness of Georgia’s private sector. The result can be near immediate improvements in efficiencies that will enable those Georgian companies that adopt these practices and techniques to demonstrate more competence and reliability to potential international buyers, investors, and partners.
The closer that index is to 100, the more similar is the export structure between two Asian economies and thus the higher is the degree of potential competition between them. The results suggest, as one might expect, that the degree of export competition is generally higher for countries at comparable levels of development. This holds across all major product categories, that is, consumer, capital, and intermediate goods exports (Figure 3.6 on capital goods, for example). Intermediate goods exports have accounted for about 70 percent of the annual export growth in Asia over the last decade—more than double the contribution of capital and consumer goods together.4 This has been particularly the case for the ASEAN-5, the NIEs, and Japan (Figure 3.2).
At the beginning of the 2000s, Japan was, by a wide margin, the most important destination of intermediate goods exports, accounting for an average 20 percent of direct exports from these countries. By contrast, China’s share more than tripled over the same period from about 4 percent to 14 percent. It directly exports nearly 40 percent of its intermediate goods exports to China, four times its exports to Japan, its second most important export destination of intermediate goods. Adding indirect exports—intermediate goods that Korea exports to other countries in the region, such as the ASEAN-4, and eventually find their way into Chinese production—Korea exports about 60 percent of its intermediate goods to China. Trade, connectivity and global supply chains, particularly sustainable and green trade, is not a zero-sum game.
