[Webinar] VIETNAM H2 2021 OUTLOOK - The shock & aftershock of the fourth wave
Wednesday, August 18, 2021 (10:00 AM - 11:30 AM)
Registration for this event is now closed.
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
The fourth wave of Covid-19 has brought prolonged lockdowns and significant disruptions to businesses and supply chains. Vietnam has, up until now, been able to fight off any major outbreaks and has been spared many of the impacts to the economy, people's lives, habits, and behaviors that major parts of the world have been experiencing.
At this webinar, our speakers from HSBC and YouGov will take a closer look at the impact in Vietnam and, with a view of the global experiences, deal with the topic of uncertainty during the second half of 2021 as Vietnam emerges on the path of recovery.
Join EuroCham at this webinar to gain insights on:
What challenges will Vietnam's economy face in the second half of the year? Whether developed and emerging financial asset markets could rebound and have sustainable recovery?
What are the effects of the COVID-19 fourth wave in Vietnam? What is the global outlook and implications of people's behaviors?
Recommendation for businesses to prepare for difficulties in the near future due to COVID-19 and strict lockdowns.
