The Covid-19 pandemic forced governments around the world to put in place unprecedented fiscal and monetary stimulus packages in response to the devastating effects of the global pandemic. While stimulus measures were used to fight past to fight crises such as the Global Financial Crisis of 2008/09 or the European debt crisis of 2011/12, the scale of the current interventions, in terms of the amounts involved, the sectors covered, and the number of countries touched by this health crisis, have no precedent in recent history. Despite this massive injection of capital to support businesses and communities, the full economic and social impact of the pandemic is still uncertain.
The “Great Reset” is a commitment by the world community to “jointly and urgently build the foundations of our economic and social system for a more fair, sustainable and resilient future.”
In this webinar, we attempt to address following questions:
1. What does a “Great Reset” mean for various financial sector participants, including institutions, markets, central banks and other actors, in Canada and Globally?
2. How can the financial sector contribute to a greener and smarter growth while reducing inequalities and building more resilient economies?
3. What will it mean in practice for the corporate sector to focus on all stakeholders (and not solely on financial returns)?
4. How can we build better collaboration between public and private finance to support and accelerate the transition to a sustainable future?
