COVID-19 has transformed the way that governments, companies and consumers think about digitalization. In recent months, health apps that utilize contact tracing have helped Asian governments combat the spread of infection, while companies have increased their online presence to better connect with consumers in a period of social distancing and quarantine. It increasingly seems that age of coronavirus has turbocharged what was already a dynamic digital world. Understanding these changes and how to navigate them will be critical knowledge for companies in a post-COVID world.

AmCham Shanghai is pleased to welcome back McKinsey Global Institute Partner Jeongmin Seong to present McKinsey's recent report on how COVID-19 has accelerated several trends including digitalization in the Chinese economy. Following the read out, Jeongmin will join Jan Craps, President APAC of AB InBev, and Selena Chu, APAC CIO of The Dow Chemical Company to discuss how coronavirus and digitalization are impacting their industries. This session will be off the record.
