Technology supply chains have been under geopolitical tension in recent years, driven in part by U.S.-China trade disputes and the Covid-19 pandemic. U.S. hawks have been calling on firms to reduce or even cut their reliance on China and this war has already significant impacts on global supply chain and ICT (information and communication technology) industries. Will this U.S.-China tech war continue to accelerate the decoupling of ICT supply chains? What's the defense and offense strategies of geo-tech competition between China and the U.S.? Is it possible for the two major powers to work together to drive innovation in ICT and fighting against the global challenges? What is the potential business and investment opportunities for Hong Kong companies, for example benefiting from the Mainland's rebuilding ICT supply chain and prosperous smart city market?
