China's control of the world's exotic minerals
Chinese leaders are actively repositioning the country from a manufacturing hub to a global power. As the back-and-forth in the U.S./China trade war continues, numerous industries could be deeply impacted. One example is China’s worldwide majority control of exotic minerals: throttling U.S. supply could be a detriment to consumer technology, innovative transportation, and defense systems. In a new CAPS Research whitepaper, “China: Reassessing the Middle Kingdom in Global Supply Management,” we examine China’s political and infrastructural evolution, along with the effect on global supply chains and recommendations on how supply management practitioners can strategically navigate the future of business with China.
