On Tuesday 17 November at 8pm Japan time we are organising a webinar focusing on the current economic situation. More specifically we have pulled together a panel of senior bankers who will talk about the following subjects:
- Economic trends expected to develop out of the current stage of Covid-crisis, particularly across the Asia Pacific region
- Impact on currencies and other macro-economic factors
- The consequences of the US election on the Asian economies
For this event we have so far received confirmation from the following speakers:
