China faces risk of global 'economic distancing'

The virus has definitely launched a be-wary-of-China campaign in most countries in Asia, Europe and certainly the United States.Kearney, the world's influential consulting firm, released in early April its seventh annual Reshoring Index which said compes "will be compelled to go much further in rethinking their sourcing strategies, (and) their entire supply chains." It was referring to American compes which the American media interpreted after the report's release to mean that it is now time for these compes to leave China and re-assess their manufacturing.Forbes magazine, analysing the Kearney report, said: "The new SARS coronavirus has literally closed the economies of the Western world and created a public relations nightmare for China." The magazine suspects the USA, which decades ago made China the hub of its manufacturing because of cheaper costs, is now looking at other south-east Asian countries including Vietnam, south-Asian countries like India and Mexico.To quote: ""In mid-March, Senator Marco Rubio told Fox News of an article in Xinhua, the Chinese state-run media agency, that stated: ''If China retaliates against the United States at this time, in addition to announcing a travel ban on the United States, it will also announce strategic control over medical products and ban exports to the United States.It does mean China's days as the go-to manufacturing hub for the Western world are over." The trade war between the USA and China has deteriorated further after the Corona outbreak.The UK, like all of Europe, is wary of Chinese takeover plans of compes going under because of the Corona shut down.It has announced a $990 billion economic stimulus package that offers $2 billion to Japanese compes ready to shift base from China to Japan."What has particularly been talked about is the clause in Japan's emergency economic package that encourages (and funds) the re-establishment of supply chains." Chinese President Xi Xinping was hitherto planning to use his first state visit to Japan in April - cancelled after the virus outbreak - as well as the Olympics in July - also cancelled - as an opportunity to close ranks with Japan at a time when its trade war with the United States was showing signs of affecting its domestic industry.
