The COVID-19 outbreak has caused an economic slowdown impacting millions of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) around the world, including the Pacific region.
To understand the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on the Pacific’s private sector from May 2020 Pacific Trade Invest (PTI) conducted a regular survey Pacific Business Monitor to track the ongoing effects COVID-19 was having on businesses across the Pacific and have released their findings in a new report. The panel will look at the findings of the report and bring personal perspectives of the ongoing realities facing businesses in the Pacific.
