Abstract: 

In this paper, Akira Igata talks about why the Quad countries must increase the resilience of critical technology supply chains while maintaining innovation. He adds that the Quad countries must also de-risk from countries that have a record of engaging in economic coercion while preventing the spread of protectionism disguised as ‘increasing resiliency’ or ‘de-risking’.
