[Webinar] Global industry overview: recovery to rotate towards consumer services

Topic: We have raised our global sector forecasts again this quarter and maintain a relatively upbeat outlook about the pace of the economic recovery. While recent Covid-related developments confirm that the pandemic is far from over, the economic data have continued to paint a positive picture. We project that the easing of restrictions across much of the world will prompt growth to rotate away from manufacturing, finance, and tech, and towards hard-hit consumer services such as travel and hospitality from Q2 2021.

We will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between APAC, EMEA and the Americas:

  • APAC - Wednesday 9th June | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA - Thursday 10th June| 10:00 GMT
  • Americas - Thursday 10th June| 16:00 EDT
