Adapting to COVID19:
How are Chinese businesses rebounding and what can be learned from the Chinese experience
In the last week of January 2020 the eight million strong megacity of Chongqing and a further 24 million in its surrounding municipality covering an area roughly the size of Scotland adjacent to Hubei, the initial epicentre of the epidemic, went into a lockdown from which it is only now beginning to emerge.
As the region tentatively returns to business and takes stock after what has been one of the biggest economic shocks in decades, we meet representatives of Chongqing SMEs and international companies to discuss COVID19's impact on their sectors and what they are doing to recover and move on.

Hear from industry professionals from the food and drink, hotel and manufacturing sectors in China discuss how businesses within their industries coped during the peak of the virus and how they are beginning to rebound. Panellists will share strategies employed to combat the negative economic impacts, as well as discuss the six measures put in place by the government. Food and beverage, hotel and manufacturing are sectors to which remote working and city lockdowns pose unique and complex challenges, forcing these industries to innovate and be revolutionary in their use of both technology and employees.
During this session, we will seek to understand how Chinese businesses pursued strategies and new innovations that both helped to alleviate financial barriers, as well as created new streams of revenue and future opportunity. This session will discuss how the food and drink, hotel and manufacturing industries begin to rebound post virus, looking at how these new innovations and working patterns will shape the way of business in the future.
