What's On

The United States could be one of the best performing markets in 2021 as the world emerges from the Covid-19 crisis, due in no small part to its substantial progress on vaccinations and supportive fiscal and monetary stimulus.

U.S. President Joe Biden hit his goal of 200 million vaccinations within his first 100 days in office. But Covid cases are continuing to rise in other countries around the world, and new, more infectious, strains have emerged. Will the U.S. and other major economies be able to bounce back economically in 2021 while elimination of the virus around the world remains uneven?

One positive impact of the pandemic has been the rapid adoption of digital technologies by businesses across all sectors. Will this pace of transformation continue once the pandemic eases? And will the changes to business operations be long lasting?

Join our webinar to hear Constance Hunter, Principal and Chief Economist of KPMG U.S., discuss how Covid-19 continues to determine the path of global recovery. In addition, she will discuss the pace, the impact and the future of digital transformation brought about by the pandemic.
