Virtual Event – Revisiting the Pandemic: Surveys on the Impact of Covid-19 on Small Businesses and Workers

Event: Thursday July 8, 2021, Washington, DC

9:00 am ET

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a dramatic roll-back of economic progress across Southeast Asia. While the region has managed to contain the spread of the virus better than most others, the economic impact on the region has been devastating. As a result of its heavy dependence on the tourism sector, Thailand has one of the worst affected economies in Southeast Asia. Join the Asia Foundation to discuss findings from Revisiting the Pandemic: Surveys on the Impact of Covid-19 on Small Businesses and Workers. This study identifies the MSMEs and workers that are the most affected by the Covid-19 crisis so that policymakers and development agencies are informed about the situation on the ground, and can make informed decisions on how best to keep the country’s path to recovery on a stable trajectory.
