The abrupt halt of so much economic activity has pushed the U.S. and global economy into recession. Uncertainty continues to build as demand wanes, output drops, and unemployment rises. While all sectors of the economy have been impacted, some are feeling the downturn more acutely than others.
On May 21 at 1:00 pm EDT, IPC will host a free webinar, “The U.S. Economic Outlook in a Post-Pandemic World.” IPC Chief Economist Shawn DuBravac will examine the impacts of COVID-19 on the U.S. economy and the prospects for an economic recovery in the coming months.
Specifically, the webinar will explore and take a deep dive into:
- Possible recovery scenarios and what they mean for the electronics manufacturing industry
- The latest economic data, trends, and risks
- IPC's current economic outlook and near-term forecast
Throughout the weeks and months to come, stay tuned for more webinars and online activities being brought to you by the IPC Government Relations and Industry Intelligence teams.
