Realigning with the New Normal: Critical Decisions for Start, Stop and Acceleration Plans
24 September 2020 | Manila, Philippines
“For some organizations, near-term survival is the only agenda item. Others are peering through the fog of uncertainty, thinking about how to position themselves once the crisis has passed and things return to normal. The question is, ‘What will normal look like?’ While no one can say how long the crisis will last, what we find on the other side will not look like the normal of recent years.”
About the Event
One of the fastest growing economy in the region, the Philippines, according to Reuters with a predicted 3.1% increase in the first quarter is facing the biggest blow.
The delayed lockdown for Luzon island which accounts for 70% of the country’s economy is evidence of the government’s attempt to protect the economy amidst fast emerging uncertainties, followed by aggressive stimulus package worth around 1.4 trillion pesos aimed at stabilizing the economy.
