Risk Management Key to Strengthening Global Value Chains Resiliency: Study

APEC economies have developed a strong foundation to deal with the COVID-19 crisis, but more needs to be done to enhance their resiliency in global value chains, according to a recent policy brief by the APEC Policy Support Unit.
