What's On

Registration Closed

Countries across Europe have been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, with Spain, Italy and France among those experiencing devastating death tolls. Concerns have been raised about the delayed response to the outbreak in several European economies and the failure to contain its spread.

The crisis has also led to a reevaluation of the interconnected global economy. Not only has globalization enabled the rapid spread of the virus, but the resulting lockdowns and disruption to supply chains have highlighted how interdependence among nations has made the global economy vulnerable to unexpected shocks.

It is impossible to say when this epidemic will end, but we can review the political and economic impact that it has had so far on Europe, and the possible long-term implications.

At this webinar organized by the Chamber's Europe Committee, Dr Simon Shen, Adjunct Associate Professor, Faculty of Social Science, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, will discuss Europe's crisis management and the epidemic's political impact.

He will be joined by Dr Alicia Garcia-Herrero, Chief Economist for Asia-Pacific, Natixis, who will analyze Covid-19's impact on the global economy and consider Europe's path to economic recovery.

Register for this webinar to learn more about the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on Europe.
