Event Details

Please join us on March 3rd for an exclusive webinar where we examine the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on Greater China's consumer-oriented sectors.


The novel coronavirus (Covid-19) has spread beyond China's borders, with confirmed cases in every continent in the world apart from Antarctica. Reduced domestic consumer confidence in Greater China, as well as inbound and outbound travel and tourism, present great threats to consumer goods and consumer services industries. In The Economist Corporate Network's survey of members following the coronavirus outbreak, these are the exact industries with the highest share of members indicating that the coronavirus would have "strongly negative impact."


Join us for this special webinar from The Economist Corporate Network where we draw on the latest analysis from The Economist Intelligence Unit and bring together industry specialists to discuss:

  • How long-lasting and severe are the effects of the coronavirus crisis on travel and tourism?
  • What are companies doing to tap into areas of increased consumer demand during this time, especially with the use of digital and e-commerce solutions?
  • How will the crisis shape mainland Chinese and Hong Kong consumer sentiments toward spending post-coronavirus, and will there be more permanent shifts in consumer attitude following the crisis?


This is the fifth in a series of special webinars from The Economist Corporate Network designed to help business leaders better understand and respond to the recent coronavirus outbreak.


*Please note that this webinar is for existing clients of The Economist Corporate Network. Limited guest seats are available.
