COVID-19: Analyzing the Human, Economic, and Market Impacts on China and the World
Wednesday, April 8, 2020
11:00am – 12:00pm est

The coronavirus pandemic is disrupting life and gripping markets around the world. Its spread has followed a similar trajectory in the various countries it has afflicted. China now appears to be at the plateau stage of the virus' progression with the number of new daily confirmed cases falling to negligible levels. As China reaches the end of the curve, we can analyze the steps it took to get there and the human, economic, and market impact the virus has incurred.

In this webinar, KraneShares' Brendan Ahern and Dr. Xiaolin Chen will answer critical questions on China's outlook and discuss how the current outbreak could provide a catalyst for select sectors. Topics will include:

  • Critical lessons from China's experience with COVID-19
  • Impact of the outbreak on China's economy and the government's fiscal & monetary response
  • Increased demand and policy support for China's healthcare sector
  • How the surge of new users to China's internet platforms, including E-Commerce, social media, streaming, and education, may support China's internet sector

Thank you for registering for our webinar. The live stream will begin at 11 am EST.
