The Year Ahead: 2021 Global Economic Forecast

Supported by Baker Tilly Hong Kong


Join us, just 48 hours after the US election, to hear from the Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s Chief Economist, Stephen Halmarick, (via live video) for his critical analysis and assessment of what lays ahead for the global economy and the implications for Australia.


Stephen will examine the implications of the global economic downturn, trade and investment between Australia and China, and will provide an assessment of what must surely be one of the most tumultuous years in recent memory.  What lies in store in 2021 as Governments around the world face record deficits, rising unemployment and major economic contraction?
