Post-Covid economic outlook: where is the world economy going?

The economy is going through a very unstable time. One of the most difficult periods at global level is coming to an end and the vaccine plan holds out hope that the economy, and life, can settle into a "new normal" over the next 12-24 months.
What medium and long term consequences has the "Coronavirus tsunami" brought to the global economic scenario? What new trends have emerged and which have been amplified from the pre-pandemic world?
According to Janet Henry, expert on the economic implications of globalization, we will need to rethink the entire economic system, to seize the opportunities and avoid the pitfalls; during this webinar she will address the following points:
  • economic outlook for emerging countries and advanced economies
  • factors that will most influence markets, businesses and consumption
  • focus on the Chinese economy and Europe post-Brexit
  • reactions to the coronavirus shock: the best and worst economies.
