Research Report Launch – MYANMAR AND COVID-19 IMPACT ON THE PRIVATE SECTOR

October 7 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

MYANMAR AND COVID-19: IMPACT ON THE PRIVATE SECTOR

Report Launch Virtual Panel 

Wednesday, 7th October 2020 | 10:00 am – 11:30 am | via Zoom

The COVID-19 pandemic of early 2020 caused a global contraction in economic demand and supply that saw hundreds of millions of workers around the globe stood down or only able to access reduced hours of work.

In May, the Business Coalition for Gender Equality (BCGE) and UN Women launched a survey to assess the impact of COVID-19 on employers and employees. Today, we are pleased to share with you the findings from these surveys in a report funded by Investing in Women, an initiative of the Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

The report provides an analysis of the impact of the pandemic on private business and not-for-profit organisations in Myanmar and draws on the perspectives of employers from 24 private sector businesses and 6 not-for-profit organisations as well as employees from 1 firm.
This report launch event seeks to help the private sector understand the impact of COVID-19 through findings from the report to allow for more informed strategic decisions for gender-responsive crisis management.
