CKGSB Dialogue E-series: Impact of Oil-market Shock on the Global Economy

Thank you for your interest. The event has ended. Please come back for more events in the future.

Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, the breakdown of negotiations between Russia and Saudi Arabia sent yet another shock to capital markets worldwide, resulting in crude prices tumbling by nearly half since the beginning of the year. As the world’s largest oil importer, China has the opportunity to reduce relevant manufacturing and transportation costs to achieve faster economic recovery from COVID-19. However, the net effects to China are not all positive as the shock is a global one. The Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) is pleased to address this pertinent topic on an upcoming webinar, titled ‘Impact of Oil-market Shock on the Global Economy,’ featuring CKGSB Professor of Management Practice of Governance and Innovations at Large Corporations and former Chairman of China Petroleum and Chemical Corp (Sinopec), Fu Chengyu. The webinar will address issues such as:


  • What are the reasons behind the oil price war in the global market?
  • What are the international and domestic forces driving Russia and Saudi Arabia’s motivations?
  • How will it impact the Chinese, American and other major economies in the world, and their economic recovery from COVID-19?
