With more factories resuming production, China will be one of the early birds to recover from the epidemic and a key stabiliser necessary to sustain international trade growth.

MEASURES

  • Efforts are being undertaken to boost domestic consumption, investment and to minimise the impact to global supply chain, including investment in agriculture production and technologies used in food supply chain.
  • Emphasis has been put on export and e-commerce sectors to resume production.

IMPACT ON FOOD SUPPLY CHAIN

  • Industries related to people’s daily life such as daily necessities, food supply, express delivery and e-commerce have not been severely hit by the lockdown in the last two months.
  • The production suspension caused by the nation’s lockdown in the last two months have forced many Chinese manufacturers to upgrade their manufacturing facilities.
