نبذة عن الحدث
African economies seemed initially little affected by the economic fallout from the pandemic due to young populations and warm weather. This changed for the worse in the summer, with 7 out of the top-20 most affected countries globally in Africa. Trade has declined by more than a third relative to last year, foreign investment has stalled, and the future of work for many Africans uncertain. The panel reviews the paths different African economies are taking to bolster the economic recovery, including through entry into financial markets and sectoral policies. A special focus of the panelists is the health of the informal economy.
