Economist insights – How well equipped are Asian markets to adapt?

Events / 09-12-20 / Share Link

Asian economies, long aided by friendly regulatory regimes and bullish investment in technology platforms and ambitious transformative programmes, have led the way globally when it comes to buoyant trade growth forecasts. However, the blow dealt by the Covid-19 pandemic risks many previously booming economies entering recession.

With the length and intensity of the downturn uncertain and with protracted containment measures likely to be needed, this discussion will consider the implications across a range of countries and also key industries, from manufacturing to financial services, travel and tourism, IT and retail. It will also consider geopolitical themes, including the risk of more isolationist trade policies and trends such as 'techno-nationalism'.
