Philippine Economic Outlook 2021: The Socioeconomic Impacts of Immunization
Time & Location
About the Event
The Italian Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines in partnership with BDO Unibank Inc., and supported by the Spanish Chamber of Commerce (La Camara) invites you to Philippine Outlook 2021: The Socioeconomic Impacts of Immunization on March 16,2021 at 2:00-3:00PM via Zoom.
With the first phase of COVID-19 vaccines being rolled out since December 2020, nation states have been scrambling to get their own supply as economic recovery appears to be dependent on the immediate immunization of the community. Global economic inequality has been further exacerbated by the impacts of the pandemic, and so the outlook of developing countries, particularly the Philippines, will be greatly impacted over the succeeding years.
As the country began its first vaccine rollout this March, the webinar aims to make sense of how the Philippines can continue to cope with the economic realities through the academe, private sector, and government. The event will be moderated by Atty. Tony Abad of Abad Alcantara, and Associates, and the guest speakers are as follows:
- Dr. Nina Gloriani, who will provide insights on the status of vaccine accessibility in the country;
- Mr. John Ravelas, who will delve into the Philippine economic outlook and how this will be affected by the vaccine distribution;
- Undersecretary Rosemarie Edillon, who will present the updated Philippine Development Plan 2017-2022 and how this has been adapted to the health crisis that disrupted Philippines' economic development.
