The third session of the AAIS Business Continuity Management series was held on 16 April 2020.
Titled, “Asia Economic Outlook: Counting the economic costs of the coronavirus outbreak”, the session featured Ms. Sian Fenner, Lead Asia Economist for Oxford Economics. It was attended by more than 30 industry participants who were keen to get an assessment of the economic downturn in Asia as the coronavirus outbreak grows each day. Ms. Fenner presented views on the impact and economic costs for countries in the region as lockdowns are being implemented and shared the possible recovery scenarios as policymakers in Asia step up monetary and fiscal support. She also touched on the effect of lockdowns on supply chain and presented risks scenarios, including extended or renewed lockdown measures due to a second wave of the pandemic.
