    Launch of the OECD’s Capital Market Review of Portugal 2020: Mobilising Portuguese Capital Markets for Investment and Growth

    We are in the midst of an unprecedented health, economic and social crisis. Before COVID-19, we expected world GDP growth to be 2.9% in 2020, now we project it to fall by 4.5%. The decline would have been much larger without the strong and effective policy support introduced by many economies.

    Financing for Development in the Era of COVID-19 and Beyond

    Global output plummeted in the first half of 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold, and, despite a partial recovery in the second half, we expect global GDP to fall by 4.5% this year as a whole. This is putting at risk our progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.

    Nature for Life Hub : Green Recovery and Green New Deals

    COVID-19 is closely linked to an unprecedented biodiversity loss. We have altered three-quarters of the world’s terrestrial surface and two-thirds of the marine environment. Ecosystem destruction and wildlife exploitation are key drivers of zoonotic diseases in humans. And around USD 44 trillion of global value added depends on nature today.

    18th OECD-IDB Latin American and Caribbean Competition Forum

    We are living in uncertain times. The Interim Economic Outlook, which we released only 10 days ago, projects global GDP to fall by 4.5% this year, before picking up to 5% in 2021. However, output in many countries will still be below the pre-crisis levels by the end of 2021, and well below what was projected prior to the pandemic.

    Business Leadership Forum organised by Instituto de Empresa (IE) Business School

    To date, over 31 million cases of COVID-19 infection have been reported worldwide, and every day brings us closer to the grim milestone of one million deaths. The virus continues to spread in many countries, while in many others it is resurging with force. And we will continue to live with it until we are able to discover and, more to the point, produce and distribute an effective vaccine or treatment on a large scale.
