As we are heading into a new phase of the global spreading of the COVID-19 crisis, and what are the implications for the US and global economy and business?

Obviously, the outcomes will differ depending on whether the peak of new COVID-19 cases arrives before the end of the April or whether it further escalates and extends into the early summer. Also, the attempts to “flatten” the curve of new cases will determine the impact on economy and business.

Join this Window On webcast to hear from experts and business leaders about how to prepare for scenarios during and beyond the crisis, including:

  • The evolution of the COVID-19 crisis itself
  • The global and US economic impacts
  • The business response in different sectors
  • The global and US political and governance aspect of the crisis
