The COVID-19 outbreak is causing extreme disruption economically across the world. Small businesses, start-ups, and entrepreneurs are directly affected by this outbreak and the related preventive measures imposed by governments worldwide.

How has the COVID-19 outbreak impacted businesses worldwide? What are the actions taken to limit the impact of an economic crisis and to counter the threat of recession? Are these sufficient for businesses, start-ups, and entrepreneurs? What do they expect from their lawyers right now? To find out the answer to these questions, join us for a 45-minute webinar with the G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance.

Entrepreneurs from Italy, Germany, China, India and Canada will share examples of policy and business responses to COVID-19 in their countries, while discussing the most pressing challenges faced by businesses worldwide. The discussion will be moderated by Xavier Costa, AIJA Immediate Past President.
