The COVID-19 epidemic has caused the global supply chain to break, especially the failure of epidemic prevention materials to enter the epidemic area, which urged countries to rethink the re-configuration of the supply chain and the local layout of the whole supply chain of public crisis emergency protection industry. There is no doubt that the anti-globalization and supply chain reconfiguration under the epidemic is quietly going on and changing the world. This article analyzes the operation logic of globalization from three perspectives of economy, value and rules, and investigates the current supply chain configuration in China. It is believed that the construction of themed industrial parks to form a supply chain cluster should attract more international capital with a cost advantage, and heavy investment in research and innovation of digital industry should combine closely with the mechanical optimization in the supply-side structural reform and upgrade China’s digital industry with capital advantage to achieve high-quality development.
