Building Post-COVID Supply Chains: Japan and the Americas
Council of the Americas will host a discussion on Latin America's opportunities to strengthen key sectors through technology and cooperation with Japan and the United States.
Japan and Latin America share a long history of friendship and economic cooperation. Along with the United States, Japan has partnered with the region to strengthen shared values of democracy, rule of law, and expanding economic prosperity. In the wake of COVID-19, new opportunities exist to strengthen supply chains, improve health systems, infrastructure, and other key sectors through technology and cooperation.
This public program will explore shifting supply chains during and after COVID-19 and considerations for Latin America on how to best capture investment. For the private sector, promising sectoral opportunities for foreign investment will be highlighted across the region including the role of technology in improving efficiency and productivity of industries and economies in the Americas.
What actions must Latin America take to become better integrated in global supply chains? How can Japan, Asia, and North America rebuild ties in Latin America to foster deeper technological and economic cooperation in the growing industries in the twenty-first century?
