The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) was first reported in Wuhan towards the end of Dec 2019. Fast forward, the virus has spread globally. On March 12, 2020, WHO called the situation a pandemic. China faces dismal economic performance in the first quarter of 2020 and so do many parts of Asia. The Western countries are beginning to face their version of lockdown and economic hardship.
In the latest, this pandemic has caused widespread and serious unemployment and recession in many regions. Governments around the world are coming up with intensive monetary and fiscal policies to stabilize both the financial and real sides of their respective economies. Against these backdrops, ABFER and NUS Business School (Department of Finance) collaborate to host a series of discussions for the purpose of informing the public, especially the students. Our focus will be on the Asian experience in general and Singapore experience in particular.
The discussions took place in a Zoom-meeting setting on Thursday, April 2.
