Economic Resilience Is the New Normal?
The Economic Research and Statistics Division (ERSD) of the World Trade Organization is pleased to invite you to the first webinar of its Webinar Series on Economic Resilience, entitled “Economic Resilience Is the New Normal?”, on Thursday 4 March at 4:00-5:30 p.m. CET.
Although the debate about economic resilience has gained attention in recent months, it is neither new nor specific to the COVID-19 pandemic. Growing concerns about the increasing frequency of natural disasters, including pandemics, and man-made disruptions raise the question of how resilient economies are to such shocks. Yet, the lack of common definition and understanding of the notion of “economic resilience” can create confusion.
Experts from academia and international organizations will be gathered to discuss the issue of economic resilience, debunk some of its misconceptions, highlight its trade dimension and identify the factors that make firms, industries, regions or countries more economically resilient than others.
Moderator: Robert Koopman (WTO Chief Economist)
- Irina Zodrow (UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction)
- Prof. Adam Rose (University of Southern California Sol Price School of Public Policy)
- Stéphane Hallegatte (World Bank)
- Prof. Monika Mrazova (University of Geneva)
- Prof. Leila Baghdadi (University of Tunis)
Each speaker will make a 10-15 minute presentation followed by a 15-30 minute Q&A session.
This webinar is open to the public but registration is required. Please register here.
