The COVID-19 pandemic is not only upsetting the tangible parts of global trade; but also disrupting its heart—the intangibles. In this 60-minute webinar, Ari Van Assche, professor of international business at HEC Montréal, discusses the rising importance of intangibles in global value chains during the two decades preceding the pandemic, how the COVID-19 lockdown measures have hurt the production of intangibles, and what policies governments should adopt to support their recovery as economies reopen.
