UNESCAP Official Tackles COVID-19 Impact on Trade and Supply Chains

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program of Mahidol University International College (MUIC) hosted Dr. Mia Mikic, Director of the Trade, Investment and Innovation Division of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific as guest speaker for the course on “Economics for Business Decision Making” on July 4, 2020 conducted by Dr. Isabel Pereira Rodrigues.

The guest lecturer addressed the topic “Asia-Pacific Perspectives on COVID-19 Response and Recovery of Trade and Supply Chains” during the online session. Starting with a review of the economic and social impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic at the global and regional levels, the focus of the presentation was on trade linked to global value chains and impacts on businesses. The case study of Thailand was also covered based on the International Trade Centre’s 2020 report.

The graduate students were particularly keen on learning about the tools and strategies needed for businesses, especially small businesses, to survive and become more resilient in these unprecedented times.

The talk concluded with a lively discussion with all participants. This lecture was also part of the initiatives of the Asia-Pacific Research and Training Network on Trade (ARTNet), of which MUIC is an institutional member.

The organizers expressed appreciation of Dr. Mikic’s contribution and said they look forward to welcoming her and the ARTNet team again, remotely or in person, in the near future.
