Book Presentation „Schwerpunkt Außenwirtschaft 2020/2021“

The COVID-19 pandemic starting in 2020 has triggered an enormous uncertainty shock in the global economic world, more severe than that of previous epidemics or the financial crisis in 2009. Lockdowns, supply shortages of important primary products and raw materials and increases in transport costs have put a massive strain on the global economy as well as companies and have resulted in negative economic effects. But there is light at the end of the tunnel. Due to government support and vaccination programmes, a strong economic recovery is on the horizon from the second half of 2021 onwards.

The workshop presents findings from the anniversary edition of “Schwerpunkt Außenwirtschaft”: First, it briefly addresses the current framework conditions for global trade as well as Austria’s foreign trade relations. Second, the event focuses on the implications of COVID-19 on global trade and the policy response to this pandemic. The question of how to shape economic recovery after the COVID-crisis is also answered.
