[Webinar] Near-term disruptions should not derail the post-pandemic industrial recovery

Topic: Renewed containment measures and recent supply-chain disruptions will weigh on the start of 2021, but activity should still more than make up for the losses incurred in 2020. As vaccination programmes gather pace, restrictions on movement and businesses should lessen, diverting more demand towards the service-side of the economy and reducing momentum for manufactured goods. But the recovery on the capex side will be more prolonged as firms prioritise repairing cashflows over new capital until the recovery solidifies.

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

  • APAC - Thursday 11th March | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA - Thursday 11th March | 10:00 GMT
  • Americas - Friday 12th March | 16:00 EST
