Join ACCA’s Chief Economist Michael Taylor and Deloitte’s Chief Economist Ian Stewart as they discuss the effects of the COVID19 virus on the global economy, as well as assess the policy response to the crisis and how quickly growth may return to a more normal rate. Is the impact enough to cause a global recession and if so, how severe will it be?
This quarterly webinar, which is co-branded with Deloitte, presents the results of the latest ACCA/IMA Global Economic Conditions Survey (GECS) and the newest GECS Report, which will have been published earlier in the month. The GECS Survey provides regular snapshot of the views of finance professionals on the global economy and their own business prospects. In each session, Deloitte and ACCA’s chief economists present their views on the global economic outlook.
