Window On the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) Crisis and Its Implications for Business

FEBRUARY 26, 2020


While risks to the global economy from a global trade war de-escalated recently, a new downside risk emerged with the COVID-19 crisis. Under a “rapid containment” scenario, the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on global GDP growth might be modest and likely short-lived. Some sectors could suffer, but others could see a pickup in their orders and sales.

Join this Window On webcast to hear from business leaders on their thoughts about navigating through this crisis, including:

  • How can organizations manage the potential impact of this fast-moving, deadly outbreak?
  • Will its effects be temporary, short-term or beyond?
  • How can companies respond to a major health outbreak from various functional perspectives?

Who Should Attend: Global business executives across all functions
