Online Event: Evaluating G20 Fiscal Responses to Covid19

October 7, 2020 • 8:30 – 9:30 am EDT

On March 26, 2020, the leaders of the Group of Twenty (G20) major economies said they were injecting over $5 trillion in fiscal support and loan guarantees to “counteract the social, economic, and financial impacts of the [Covid-19] pandemic.” Since then, the CSIS Economics Program estimates that G20 countries have increased fiscal support to more than 11 percent of their collective gross domestic product, led by the United States, Japan, and Germany.

More than six months since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, policymakers can learn from the successes of different economic responses and outstanding gaps to inform future fiscal support. Please join the CSIS Economics Program for a discussion on major economies’ fiscal support to the crisis, what further support is needed, and the path to long-term economic stability. The event will feature remarks from a panel of practitioners and economists from Japan, Germany, and the United States.
