Because of the relatively better situation with covid-19 pandemic, Asia saw the lowest decline in economic activity in 2020 compared to other regions and is forecasted to show the fastest recovery in 2021. In our annual Asia Business Outlook Survey (ABOS) we were asking business leaders in APAC to provide their assessment and the view from the ground on how the year ahead may look like. Does better handling of the pandemic in Asia translate into better outcomes for business or is the sentiment still too weak? Apart from covid-19, what are the crucial risks for business leaders in Asia - and how they have changed over the last few years? How does the situation differ from country to country? And where do executives see opportunities for growth in 2021 and beyond?
Join us as we review the business sentiment in Asia and consider how executives across different sectors are positioning their companies for 2021.
ABOS is an annual survey by Economist Corporate Network of business dynamics in the Asia-Pacific and its latest iteration was conducted in January 2021. The survey draws on the views and critical insights of over 500 business leaders at some of the world's largest multinationals.
