CHINA ELECTRIC SUPPLY CRISIS THREATEN THE GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN

The factory in the world's largest exporting country, especially a supplier of major technology firms in northeast China, is worried about breaking the supply chain at the end of the year due to severe power shortages.

According to Bloomberg news, this disruption comes as manufacturers and carriers race against time to meet demand for everything from clothes to children's toys, amid the buying season. Year-end shopping is offered. The global supply chain is already upended by a host of problems, from soaring raw material prices, prolonged congestion at seaports, to a lack of empty containers to store goods.

“THIS IS DEFINITELY A MASSIVE MESSAGE”

Chinese manufacturers warn that strict measures to cut electricity consumption will lead to a decline in manufacturing output in leading localities in this field such as Jiangsu (Jiangsu), Zhejiang (Zhejiang) and Guangdong (Guangdong) - three provinces together account for about a third of China's gross domestic product (GDP). Falling output of goods can push prices up.

Local governments in China are requesting power outages to achieve their goals of reducing energy consumption and emissions. However, some localities suffer from real power shortages.

The power outage follows a recent disruption at Chinese ports, which has had widespread effects throughout the entire global supply chain. Part of the port of Ningbo-Zhou San (Ningbo-Zhou San) had to be closed for several weeks in August due to the Covid outbreak, after the Yantai port in Shenzhen (Shenzhen) had to close in May for the same reason.
