It is well known that macro-financial channels and spillovers could amplify the negative economic and financial impact of the COVID-19 outbreak. This webinar discusses the macroeconomic repercussions of the global shock covering three important macrofinancial aspects—financial market volatility and stress, impaired credit intermediation, and spillovers and amplification through structural macrofinancial linkages. The authors provide an overview of developments and discuss some approaches and tools that country authorities can use to quantify the macrofinancial impact. Following the presentations participants will have an opportunity to comment and interact with the presenters.
