International Trade & Exchange Research Community

COVID-19 and the Global Economy:
A Virtual Roundtable-RESCHEDULED: April 15

On 16 April 2020, as the unforeseen COVID-19 pandemic roiled the global economy and experts from all fields struggled to keep pace with events, the New York Times declared “It’s the End of the World Economy as We Know It.” Now nearly one year later, with the pandemic coming under control, it is time for some more thoughtful judgments.  

What can we see as some of the lasting impacts of the global experience with COVID-19?  

Please join us in a roundtable discussion and Q&A with members of the UNCW faculty exploring the impact of COVID-19 on business practices, financial markets, trade, and human mobility. Presented by UNCW’s Research Community in International Trade and Exchange (RCITE) and the Office of Research and Innovation.
