The containment efforts and shutting down of large sectors of the economy have triggered an unavoidable global economic crisis. Experts are warning of a global recession that will be deeply felt, particularly by middle income countries. In Jordan, the considerable disruption to many industries presents major financial implications and challenges.

To gain insight on what the future fiscal and monetary landscape may look like, and the planning required to manage such extraordinary economic scenarios, Columbia Global Centers | Amman invites you to a webinar featuring prominent governmental and financial sector leaders in Jordan who will offer their perspectives and shed light on the most likely pathways toward a national economic recovery, as well as the potential risks that must be averted by policy makers.
