EPISODE I

Reviving Economic Growth: Staging an effective fight against the adverse impact of Covid-19
Registration for this webinar is now closed. Please keep checking this space for an on-demand version after the live session is over.

The first webinar of the series aims to clearly define what we are up against and draw a broad framework of what recovery will look like.

The World Bank recently released its Global Economic Prospects report which expects the India’s gross domestic product to contract by 3.2% in 2020-21. The Government of India and RBI have introduced various economic and fiscal stimulus measures to tide over the COVID-19 crisis. However, to navigate through these unprecedented times, the financial services sector needs effective policy frameworks that can help manage liquidity, mitigate credit risk, and ensure the quality of financial reporting and disclosures.
