Even with foreign investment falling worldwide in 2020, our firm was more sought after than ever by international clients. The workflow and the relationships we had established in previous years remained highly active.”

INTERVIEW: DAMBISA MOYO

In an exclusive interview, influential economist and writer Dambisa Moyo analyzes the challenges that countries will need to overcome in order to resume economic growth in the wake of the global Covid-19 crisis. Moyo highlights the most important characteristics companies need to remain competitive in the present, while also commenting on possible business and investment opportunities in the coming years.

The ability for the economy to come back, in terms of structural reforms, is about making sure that not only the investments being made are sustainable in the long term, but those investments are being made in a way that is generating constructive, productive returns to the economy.”
