During the webinar, our panellists – James DilleyJason KardachiAshok KumarEdward Middleton, and Desmond Chua – led by Luc Mongeon, Managing Editor at Debtwire Asia-Pacific, discussed areas where financial stress is of greatest concern in economies across Asia Pacific.

The panellists shared their expert insights and our very engaged audience of 500+ dealmakers in the region contributed their views about the market by participating in the polls.

Several participants also raised thought-provoking questions that our panelists did not get a chance to address during the live briefing, such as:

  • Looking back at the last financial crisis, how do you think the APAC M&A market will be able to rebound after the COVID-19 crisis? 
  • Will China now be less willing to allow failure of SOEs to reduce impact on the economy and jobs? 
  • Are there any particular sectors that are performing better across APAC despite the pandemic?
  • Are funds looking for higher returns than prior to COVID crisis, for same level of risk?

 

These are just some of the questions that were answered by our panel in this bonus Q&A piece. Get your copy today.
