About this episode

What is slowbalisation? Or Techceleration? Across Asia, we assess the economic consequences of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the bifurcated outlook for the economies in the region.

To shed some light on these extraordinary and uncertain times, Ashurst Partner and Head of Region for Asia, Jini Lee is delighted to be joined by Janet Pau, Hong Kong Director at The Economist Corporate Network. Together, they discuss the economic impacts of uneven vaccine rollouts, government lockdowns, and escalating trade tensions.

The episode also looks at the likely risks and opportunities stemming from the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). And there’s a glimpse into what the future may hold for working practices in the Asia region.
