Rewiring supply chains to benefit Emerging Markets excluding China

With deglobalization, ongoing trade tensions and lingering impacts of the pandemic, the global supply chain continues to sputter and break down. Efforts to reduce dependency on China has meant investing more in trade diversification. However, rewiring will be challenging, slow and expensive. While China will hold many competitive advantages in manufacturing, EM excluding China will be the key beneficiary of supply chain diversification. What are the responsible investment implications for this transition?
