The Covid-19 pandemic is having a huge negative effect on the global economy, and the Economist Intelligence Unit expects recovery to pre-coronavirus levels only in 2022. But this global forecast masks big disparities between countries. Some will recover quickly, while others will take much longer.
China will be a rare exception, as we do not expect the country to enter a recession this year. However rivalry between the US and China will intensify, regardless of the November election results, complicating markets and investment decisions.
More than ever, business leaders need reliable, timely information and strong networks to support their difficult decision making.
We invite you to join us for our Regional Strategic Forecast as we discuss:
- The outlook for the global economy and Asia/Pacific for 2021 and beyond
- Our predictions for currencies, trade, supply chains and jobs
- The impact of the low oil-price environment and shifting commodity prices
- The outlook for the Chinese economy
We hope you will be able to attend our event in person - but if you cannot, please let us know and we will forward the dial-in instructions to you.
Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please contact us.
