Descriptions


While the coronavirus is first and foremost a devastating health crisis, it also touches upon national and international economic and financial topics.  Since March, the SEACEN Centre has been trying to address many of the domestic implications of COVID-19.  This three-day online course is trying to fill the gap on some international issues that either resulted from the crisis or long-running imbalances and fragilities that were brought to the fore since the start of the pandemic. Presentations will focus on capital flows; debt sustainability; commodity prices; the global safety net; trade, globalisation and supply chains as well as the continuing dominance of the US dollar in the international monetary and financial system.
