Jose Maria Vinals headshot with FIDIC webinar descriptionCOVID19 brought out to light various vulnerabilities in different realms of our lives. Some business and industry sectors have become especially fragile due to an unexpected, unrelenting and active pandemic.

Please join our trade practitioner, José María Viñals, for the FIDIC (international Federation of Consulting Engineers) COVID-19 webinar series focusing on “Clients, investors and developers’ perspectives on the fragility of the construction and infrastructure sector” on May 28, 2020 at noon-1:30 p.m. CET.

Registration ends on May 28, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. CET.

Governments and the global economy have already started reacting to the COVID-19 crisis, taking measures to defend their domestic economies and safeguard jobs. In time they will also bring forward plans for economic stimulus programs, but how does their response to date feed into investors and clients’ subsequent plans?

This webinar will explore how government stimulus is feeding down into developers and clients’ plans for the future and what this might mean for the construction and infrastructure industry.

FIDIC has assembled an excellent line-up of expert speakers to reflect the views of clients, investors and developers and to gain an understanding of what that means for our sector going forward. By sharing collective experiences from across the world, this webinar will offer help and guidance to firms facing the challenge of dealing with the current crisis.
