Webinar: European economy and corporate movements around COVID-19

The EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation will hold a webinar on the influence of COVID-19 on the European economy.

The slowdown of the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe has allowed the economy to progressively restart, but secondary infections are still considered a major risk by companies. An outlook of macro economy is important to overcome this unprecedented crisis, but looking into how European companies, including local Japanese companies, are responding to the current situation may help in reading future trends. In this webinar, a speaker from JETRO Tokyo will provide explanations on the Japanese perspective, while a speaker from SMEunited in Brussels will give insights on the European perspective.
