Manufacturing in China, which is strongly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, has largely recovered, but now shutdowns in the rest of the world are threatening the supply of key parts and demand. Guangdong, a province who’s three decades of development is considered nothing short of an economic miracle, has taken full advantage of globalization’s many opportunities and therefore inevitably branded itself as the 'world factory'.

What impact did the COVID-19 have on Guangdong's manufacturing industry? What measures have Guangdong's manufacturing companies taken to respond to the epidemic? In the face of an uncertain international environment, how should Guangdong's manufacturing industry implement a long-term strategy when considering factors like diversified manufacturing, relocation, and cost-saving? Compared with other countries and regions, will the 'world factory' still be able to maintain its advantages?

Trade disputes are usually understood as conflicts between countries with competing national interests, but as Matthew C. Klein and Michael Pettis argued in their recently published book, "it is a conflict mainly between bankers and owners of financial assets on one side and ordinary households on the other — between the very rich and everyone else."
