ABOUT THE EVENT
Many are focused on the response of governments to the pandemic and its economic impact, and the scale of support needed from the IMF and development banks, both multilateral and bilateral. But the private sector must lead as well, not just in the recovery phase but also in crisis response. Its capacity for rapid adaptation and innovation, understanding of consumer behavior, flexibility, and productive capacity are essential for responding to multiple and ongoing shocks and uncertainties. How can the public and private sectors collaborate most effectively in restarting financial flows, delivering essential health and other services to the vulnerable, and restoring livelihoods?
