From a public health perspective, Japan and Thailand are two countries that have fared reasonably well in responding to the COVID-19 crisis. How have these two nations weathered the COVID-19 disruptions as it relates to entrepreneurship? Our webinar from 18 June 2020 provided insight on the answers to these questions and you can watch the recording at the following link.
The panelists for this session were Ulrike Guelich, Professor at Bangkok University and the leader of the GEM Thailand team, and Noriyuki Takahashi, Professor at Musashi University and the leader of the GEM Japan team. The session was moderated by GEM Executive Director Aileen Ionescu-Somers.
They shared insights on:
