COVID-19 has forced businesses to look at the status and health of every part of their business. As business leaders begin to address the needs of their foreign operations, they face a complex matrix of government programs, different in approach, scope and scale in each country. What are the programs available? Which businesses or situations are they intended to address? Will these government programs apply to my business?

KPMG is hosting webinars to provide foreign investors with an overview of different government programs to support businesses as they address the economic fallout of COVID-19 in key markets around the world. The webinars will cover a range of business areas including:

  • Tax, social and legal measures
  • Financing programs
  • Non-governmental measures [where applicable]
  • Question and answers following presentations

Intended audience: C-suite and key strategy, financing and operational leaders from foreign investors and companies with business interests.

Please note the Webinars will be in English.
