The Region & Enterprise Scenario Post Pandemic
The SEA economy tends to be negatively impacted from COVID-19 and worse than other sub regional economies, owing to the high reliance on tourism, travel and hospitality industries, and exports which then cascades to impact most other allied sectors.

Countries are announcing fiscal packages to help affected businesses and households, with a median value of about 3.5 per cent of GDP.

According to IMF, the deterioration for South-East Asian countries is expected to even reach 15 per cent of GDP. Enterprises and their financial custodians are now on a journey together with their respective nation’s recovery plan and are needing to re-strategize their business models to accelerate growth and contribute to the recovery.

CFOs – The Custodians of Financial Sustainability
The shifting business transformational goal posts, fluctuating confidence indexes, oscillating market stability and increasing competition, unclear labor market and rising capital inefficiency are a few challenges to name, facing the CFOs.

CFOs are on a long journey to recovery and are responsible to make the right investment and continuity decisions and adapt quickly in order to successfully navigate the new reality of uncertainty. They are required to course-correct business strategies in response to the fast-emerging economic state, with cost containment measures and deferring or cancelling planned investments, taking center stage.

CFO Innovation Virtual Forum, taking place during 11 – 13 November 2020, offers a unique opportunity to network with 50+ industry experts and listen to recent technology trends, all from the comfort and safety of your personal workspace.
