About this event

Thank you for your interest. The event has ended.

Please come back for more events in the future.

The impact of COVID-19 has sent shock waves across global markets, with stock markets reaching an all-time low since the global financial crisis of 2008. The Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business’ (CKGSB) Business Conditions Index (BCI)—widely followed as a key indicator of Chinese executives’ sentiment on China’s macroeconomic environment—reflects this trend in sales and profit forecasts of companies in China. Yet, many questions remain on the challenges and opportunities brought by the COVID-19 outbreak.

  • What is the impact of COVID-19 on businesses in China?
  • How and when do companies expect recovery?
  • Where do opportunities lie for businesses?
  • How is the labor market affected by the COVID-19 outbreak?
  • How can governments improve business conditions?

The Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) will host a webinar on ‘The Impact of COVID-19 on Businesses and the Chinese Economy’, on which CKGSB Associate Dean and Professor of Economics Li Wei will reveal for the first time the findings for March 2020 of the CKGSB Business Conditions Index and shed light on the outbreak’s impact on Chinese businesses, particularly private enterprises. Meanwhile, Greg Gilligan—Chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in China and Managing Director of PGA TOUR China—will expand on COVID-19’s influence on American businesses and how they are coping.

Please join us for this special CKGSB webinar, and share the registration details below with your colleagues.
