Covid-19 has plunged the global economy into its deepest recession since the Great Depression. Lockdowns, shutdowns and travel restrictions have led to bankruptcies, layoffs and a sharp fall in global trade.

Join the global thinkers in a live debate about the long-term impact of the pandemic and the new opportunities for reshaping the global economy and the international order.
