Decoupling unwise, experts say

Doug Barry, director of communications for the US-China Business Council, told China Daily in an email: "Many US companies have been in China for decades and are there to sell in the China market, which is where substantial future growth is likely to take place." He said it remains to be seen whether incentives to reshore will be sufficient. Once the math is done, it may not seem very alluring, he said. Global supply chains take years to build and can't easily be reconfigured "at the drop of a hat," according to Barry.
