The Path out of the Pandemic - Recession or Recovery?


COVID-19 has hit the Australian economy hard, which industries could be permanently changed?

There’s tremendous uncertainty about the true and lasting impact that the coronavirus will have on the Australian economy. In times like these it makes sense to assess the probability of the different scenarios we may face and try to understand the various factors that would shape them.
Whilst crystal-ball-gazing is an inexact science by its very nature, the outcomes for Australian businesses and workers are very real and it’s wise to be prepared.

In this webinar, we will consider practical case studies from Australia and overseas to position you to assist your clients in adjusting to this new environment and possible changes in business activity.

Join economist, David McDonald for a discussion of these important questions:
• Will the Australian Government’s policy response lead to a quick recovery?
• Which sectors could see permanent change or possibly never recover?
• Is online retail the future and are shopping centres doomed?
• Is working from home the new normal and if so what does this mean for commercial property?
• Will tourism recover?
• Will we pay for the crisis with higher taxes and which ones?

Learning Outcomes:
• How quickly the economy might bounce back.
• Which sectors might be permanently changed or damaged
• How clients can prepare for the new business environment

Suited to:
Accountants, financial advisors, business advisors.
