The IoD’s third Wednesday Webinar will examine the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and use economic models to discuss how different jurisdictions are responding to the crisis and what the options are for recovery.
The International Monetary Fund recently announced the “Great Lockdown” recession will drag global GDP lower by 3% in 2020 and it’s been reported the coronavirus pandemic is set to leave 170 countries with lower GDP per capita by the end of the year.
In this webinar, Martyn Dorey will look at his financial modelling behind the crisis and compare Guernsey’s modelling to other jurisdictions, looking at who is ahead and who is behind.
Martyn will also highlight which industries will be most affected over the short and medium-term, and how working practices are likely to change.
Turning to explore the different options for a phased reversal of lockdown, Martyn will examine the key variables that need to be taken into account.
11.00 am – Introduction from John Clacy
11.10 am – Martyn Dorey will discuss how different jurisdictions are responding to the Covid-19 pandemic and how to model the economic impact of Covid-19 whilst looking at the options for exit and recovery.
