This webinar will cover the key themes that we believe will affect emerging markets over the coming year as the global economy begins to recover from the Covid-19 crisis.

It will focus on the ways in which the recovery will play out at different speeds in different sectors and regions, and look at how policymakers will respond to a rapidly changing environment.

Topics covered will include:

  • Which economies will bounce back fastest in 2021?
  • Will some regions of the world suffer lasting economic damage?
  • What is next for commodity prices?
  • How will policymakers normalise fiscal and monetary policy in the years following the pandemic? What is the long-term outlook for monetary policy?
