Managing through the maelstrom: COVID-19 – a health and economic crisis

29 May, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm UTC+8

What started as a health crisis has morphed into an economic crisis.  Navigating a state of emergency, business leaders are challenged daily to attend to the needs of multiple stakeholders.

Initial imperatives of ensuring employee safety, and enabling operational continuity, have been joined by concerns over supply chain integrity and changing modes of customer engagement.  As budgets bend and forecast fracture, financial risk is ever-present. 

The accelerated adoption of digital technologies has the potential to unlock exciting new business models and facilitate mobility and decentralized working – yet these virtues bring vulnerability.  Amongst this complexity and uncertainty, leaders must conceive and create their command center – an organizational response to these challenges that enables them to operate their business, manage risk, and ensure regulatory compliance.  Supporting decision making today, whilst planning for tomorrow.

The Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Japan (SpCCJ), together with the Belgium-Luxembourge Chamber of Commerce in Japan (BLCCJ) has invited partners and directors of the Japan member firm of Deloitte to share with our members, their perspective related to doing business in Japan during the COVID-19 emergency.
