In a move to counter china’s ascendancy of the supply chain in the Indo-pacific province, trade ministers of India, Japan and Australia Tuesday officially launched the supply chain resilience initiative in a virtual trilateral ministerial meeting. The trade ministers initially met in September last year to delve into the opportunities of the supply chain initiative. Based on the high-level discourse among Australia, India, and Japan since September previous year, the ministers remarked on the importance of risk management and continuity plans to avoid supply chain disturbances. They asserted their dedication to strengthening the resilient supply chains. Probable policy gauge may include • Supporting the improved consumption of digital technology • Supporting trade and investment divergence. Supply chain International supply chains are complex brutes. They are the multi-tier up, a multi-dimensional ecology of closely associated parts that let's trim, just-in-time manufacturing and delivery models. This intricacy gives a soar to supply chain susceptibility hazards such as natural disaster mishaps, trade wars, and cyberattacks that grow in incidence and brutality. Supply chain resilience It is a supply chain's capability to be primed for unforeseen risk occurrences. If you have a robust supply chain, you can cope with reacting and recouping promptly to these interruptions by reverting to the original state or relocating to a new, more appropriate state to improve customers' device market share financial stance. The objective of SCRI The SCRI seeks to make a virtuous cycle of enriching supply chain resilience to achieve robust, sustainable steady ultimately, and comprehensive growth in the region. The ministers endorsed that the enlargement of the SCRI may be considered based on unanimity if required in due course, the three trade ministers said in a joint statement after the meeting. What will be done now? Initially, SCRI will emphasise sharing the most sophisticated methods on supply chain resilience and conducting investment marketing events and buyer-seller similar events to give prospects for stakeholders to discover the potential of branching out of their supply chains. The ministers directed their officials to execute the preliminary projects and develop beyond the program. The ministers agreed to summon at least once a year to steer the enactment of the SCRI as correctly as to consult on exactly how to develop the program. The ministers concede that the covid-19 pandemic had a remarkable effect on energies lost, livelihoods, and economies were shaken. The epidemic had uncovered supply chain helplessness globally and in the region. Reason for targeting only china. When the covid hit china and lockdown happened then, many manufacturers could not produce. There was a shortage because other countries could not get the raw materials. If we take the example of the automobile industry, then in global range many of them did not get the parts and due which the complete manufacturing of the automobile couldn’t happen. So if we see all these, then China has become the world production centre for some decades. And also, if we see then the rare earth elements are still the largest producer and supplier of them is the china it still supplies 90% of these rare earth elements. So when the pandemic hit and lockdown happened, and work could not function properly due to the shortage of the supply products, they understood China's dependence. So now the like-minded nations are working closely towards trustworthy, dependable, and reliable supply chains in the Indo-pacific region, said Goyal.
