About This Webinar: As our world continues to struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic, many regions are facing a severe surge in new infections, hospitalizations, and deaths. Even initially encouraging vaccine trials and promises of quicker than normal regulatory approvals are tempered by the daunting logistics of distributing vaccines to potentially billions of people worldwide. Contributors to the recent AIB Insights Special Issue on Effects of Coronavirus on International Business will discuss how multinational companies may or may not adjust their global strategies to manage the structural changes created by the health and economic crisis.
