Fuel for recovery? The war on oil prices between Saudi Arabia and Russia dealt a particularly savage blow to oil-exporting countries around the world, intensifying the economic the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The recent OPEC+ deal to limit production might help, but the reduction in output presents a whole new set of potential problems. How would these dynamics affect opportunities and risks for multinationals operating across major oil-exporting markets globally?

In this free webinar FrontierView’s head of research, Martina Bozadzhieva, and Zeynep Kosereisoglu, director for Middle East and Africa research, discuss the outlook for the region with WSJ’s frontier markets editor Dan Keeler.

Topics covered included:

  • The outlook for oil prices for the rest of the year
  • How major oil-exporting governments globally are handling the combined shocks of Covid-19 and the oil price shock, looking at major exporters across the Middle East and Africa, Eastern Europe, LATAM, Southeast Asia and the U.S.
  • Implications for how multinationals should be thinking about the impact on demand from these countries from a government, consumer and business point of view and how they can factor that into their revised plans
  • The effect of a potential oil-price rise on countries that have been benefiting from lower prices
