“In the short term, Italy-China trade relations will suffer, especially due to consumers’ health concerns, sometimes accompanied by racist narratives and behaviors. In the long term though, trade relations will recover – global production networks are simply too embedded in China’s “ecosystem” to think that we can live without China, even though I suspect that this coronavirus will accelerate the end of a cycle of globalization, with many companies shifting production to Southeast Asia or simply reshoring.”
Giuseppe Gabusi (T.wai & University of Torino) gives some insights on the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe in the article “COVID-19 Hits Italy: A Test for China Ties” on The Diplomat.
