This is the third webinar in the series COVID-19 impact on business and trade. In this webinar we will focus on the future: What have we learned so far? What do we believe will be “the new normal” for business? Consequences of the pandemic on urban culture and society at large, the concept of work flexibility, the global agenda as well as on an individual level. We would like this webinar to allow us to lift the gaze and encourage us to look beyond managing the crisis in the here and now.
The session is moderated by Teresia Fors, Vice President Swedish Australian Chamber of Commerce, and on the panel, we are excited to present:
