    Our Global Public Policy Practice has been closely tracking the policy developments across the Atlantic as the pandemic continues to unfold. We are publishing our observations daily.

    The impact of COVID-19 has been unexpected, unrelenting, causing complex uncertainties and economic and human devastations in almost every corner of the world. Businesses are trying to survive and preparing for the aftermath. Governments play a crucial role in helping businesses mitigate the financial and human tolls, navigate the ongoing crisis and chart a path forward. More importantly, their responses today can have a profound impact for business operations far beyond the current pandemic.

    We are delighted to partner with the US-India Strategic Partnership Forum (USISPF) and invite you to a virtual discussion to specifically examine the government responses in the US, Europe and India, how these governments are dealing with the economic consequences of COVID-19, and to focus on minimizing disruptions, ensuring stability and business continuity, and reenergizing their respective economies.
