COVID-19 in Latin America Opportunities in Demand Disruption

Webinar Overview


The COVID-19 pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on economic demand in Latin America. It is changing consumer patterns, disrupting traditional business models and re-configuring the role of the state in the economy. Nevertheless, the pandemic has also created major opportunities for consumers, companies and governments. We have invited four experts, renowned in their fields, to discuss what those opportunities for Latin America are, with a particular focus on Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico.
