    The Covid-19 pandemic has had a crippling effect upon many countries, including our own. Many of the developing countries who have joined the BRI are facing economic situations far worse and are now forced to deal with unmanageable China debt burdens. The concern is now whether some BRI projects face foreclosure and handover like Sri Lanka’s Hambantota port or whether the debt will be renegotiated.

    • Where does China stand economically in a post-covid world?

    • What happens to China’s entire Belt & Road Initiative stand in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic?
    • What do U.S. firms do for supply chain reorganization, on-shoring, diversification and new markets?
    • What are other countries doing to enable the “Chexit” of their businesses from China?
    • How do the USMCA and the new U.S./U.K. trade deals fit into this picture?
    • What about other options and markets (Latin America, Vietnam, India, Taiwan, the EU, Japan, etc.)
    • Is there a trend towards the polarization of trading blocs with the emergence of a “reliable allies” market?
