August 25, 2020 : ASEAN Rebound To Recovery

11:00AM-12:15PM (GMT +8)

The Covid-19 pandemic is an earth-shattering event, which will precipitate consequences that will reverberate throughout the world. The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) expects the economy to crawl at a slow pace this year. Whilst countries will grapple with their respective issues for a while, those nations which are fastest to rebound will surely reap the benefits of a more sustainable recovery. ASEAN can capitalize on its inherent resilience with a common regional response, dedicating its collective resources to rebuilding both at home and in the region.

11:00AM-12:15PM(Malaysia Time)

With the various ASEAN government economic stimulus packages, this is ASEAN’s opportunity to fill global shortfalls and deal with the economic consequences of the crisis.
