Information

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. With economies reopening even as the coronavirus continues to spread, how resilient will be the rebound? And as governments, the business sector and multilateral organizations struggle to reset national, regional and global economies for a post-pandemic world, how will the crisis change patterns of globalization and multilateral cooperation?

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.
