COVID-19 poses major geo-strategic and economic challenges for the world. Disruptions to travel, border movements and the ability of people to earn income threaten globalized economic and political relationships. 

On April 30, the American Pakistan Foundation and the EastWest Institute will host a webinar discussion with experts on how the pandemic policies and decisions by major powers such as the United States, the European Union and others will determine the outlook of the global economy and political stability around the world, particularly in South Asia and other crisis-prone regions.
