COVID-19 and the Future of Doing Business in Asia

The COVID19 pandemic has caused massive disruption and volatility to the global economy. The loss of lives and livelihoods has pushed governments to intervene significantly in response to the outbreak while businesses are adapting to the rapidly changing needs of their people, consumers, and suppliers. As the world contends with the outbreak, countries in Asia have pioneered containment strategies, shaped new protocols, and restarted economic activity. As businesses in the region resume economic activity, Asian companies are in a unique position to define and structure the “new normal.” What will the “new normal” look like? How is COVID19 reshaping the dimensions that define the future of doing business in Asia? Focus countries include the following: (1) China, (2) Japan, (3) Singapore, (4) South Korea, (5) Philippines, (6) Vietnam

The quality of the relationship has always been shaped by the personalities representing the two countries. Shinzo Abe, Japan’s now longest-serving prime minister, has been keen to establish good personal ties with Donald Trump, whose “America First” policy implied a major shift in the US approach to regional and global issues. This roundtable will discuss the changes that US-Japan relations underwent since the beginning of Trump’s presidency and analyze the regional and global implications.
