The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy has been unprecedented.
The European economy has been badly hit by a series of lockdowns and travel disruptions and is currently adapting to the new situation, whereas China is on the road to economic recovery after successfully containing the pandemic.
What are the economic results of the COVID-19 pandemic in the world? Which budgetary implications can we observe for the European and Chinese economies? Looking ahead, what are the prospects of economic recovery in Europe and China?
The BCECC has invited economy expert Prof. Dr. Paul de Grauwe to discuss the state of the economy in China and Europe in 2021 in our webinar “Paul De Grauwe’s economic forecast for China and Europe in 2021’ on 14 January 2021 at 10:30 CET (17:30 CST).
Mr. De Grauwe is currently working as a John Paulson Professor at the London School of Economics and as an associate research fellow at the Centre for European Policy Studies in Brussels. His research interests lie in the economics of monetary unions and behavioral macroeconomics. He has published many works on these topics and is regularly asked as a guest speaker for diverse universities and media outlets because of his extensive knowledge and expertise.
