Trends and analysis on the impacts of the COVID-19 on markets and businesses in developing countries

The COVID-19 pandemic has been an unprecedented shock to the world economy.

Businesses in developing markets face issues that are very similar to the issues businesses in more developed markets are facing, such as disruptions in supply chains or abrupt changes in the availability of staff or access to finance. However, as their operating environment is often more challenging to begin with, businesses in developing countries are significantly weaker positioned to face a crisis.

This Finnfund Insights discusses some of the main channels through which businesses in the developing world feel the impact from COVID-19.

In addition, the report gives an overview on how the pandemic has affected businesses in Finnfund’s key industries thus far: sustainable forestry, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, and financial institutions.
