The global economy started in 2019 on a difficult note.
Slowing global trade, accelerated risks in the outlook with no exception of China, and the continued political related uncertainties in the US are all in our landscape. As a major hub for global trade, Asia Pacific corporates are not able to escape from the impact of this trend, and unfortunately, some may suffer from the rising risks in non-payments.
Which countries will be the most affected? Where are the risks and opportunities for companies?
Topics to be covered in this session:
- How is the Global Trade in 2019 and 2020?
- What will be the role of China in the global economy and especially in Asia?
- Which countries will be the winners and the losers?
