This policy brief starts with a quick review of earlier implementations of the APEC Supply-chain Connectivity Framework Action Plan (SCFAP): SCFAP I (2010–2015) and SCFAP II (2017–2020). It then reviews key trends in GVC development, and considers the new challenges and opportunities found in the digital economy. Finally, it suggests the chokepoints that are of essential relevance to strengthening supply-chain connectivity and regional economic integration in the Asia-Pacific region.
