The COVID 19 pandemic has taken a devastating toll on lives and livelihoods everywhere. Emerging economies have been particularly hard hit because of their low income levels, high population densities, weak medical infrastructure and limited policy space. Many emerging economies entered the covid crisis with weak economic fundamentals; the crisis has made them weaker. Their governments are struggling to find the resources for expanding their health care facilities, rolling out vaccines and providing a safety-net to the most vulnerable of their populations. The seminar by Dr Subbarao will focus on some of the big policy challenges and dilemmas in the short and medium-term confronting emerging market economies as they navigate their way through this unusually sharp health and economic crisis.

This talk is now available on our TIU Global Dialogue YouTube channel. Check it out here.
