The webinar will discuss our outlook for the Turkish economy heading into 2021, in the context of still elevated uncertainty from the Covid-19 pandemic, declining macro fundamentals in the Turkish economy and the upcoming US presidential election.
We will also take time to reflect on the medium-term economic impact from the pandemic. In particular, what it means for policymaking going forward and policymakers’ ability to deal with future crises, and potential supply-chain shifts and opportunities that may occur as a consequence of the pandemic.
Topics covered will also include:
- Turkey’s growth and macroeconomic outlook for 2021
- How the US presidential election will be of significance to Turkey’s geopolitical outlook
- The medium-term impact of the pandemic on policymaking
- Opportunities and supply-chain shifts we expect to materialise over the medium term, spurred by the disruption from Covid-19
- An overview of our emerging market outlook
