ECIPE Webinar: Asia and the Pacific Region – A Protracted Recovery

July 07 2020
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Chang Yong Rhee
Time: 15:00

A discussion with Chang Yong Rhee, Director of the Asia and Pacific Department at the IMF

The global economy, says the International Monetary Fund, is projected to shrink by 4.9 percent in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a more negative impact on economic activity in the first half of 2020 than anticipated, and the recovery is projected to be more gradual than previously forecasted.

Strong multilateral cooperation remains essential on multiple fronts. Beyond the pandemic, policymakers must cooperate to resolve trade and technology tensions that endanger an eventual recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.
