Coface Country Risk Conference 2020

October 29th 2020 - this year online

Coface Country Risk Conference in Switzerland
A premium event focusing on country and industry risks worldwide

Organised by Coface, this conference is an ideal platform for specialists and managers to examine and discuss country and industry risks. At our event, you’ll be at the centre of national and international expert discussions about economic and trade issues and also you will be able to hone your vision for the management of your company. Find out first-hand about the opportunities and risks of current economic events worldwide and share insights about the latest trends and developments with other senior managers.


In many countries, the Coface Country Risk Conference is one of the industry’s most important events.


By taking part, you will not only have the opportunity to optimise your export and investment decisions, but also to expand your knowledge in the areas of business, politics, society and the economy. We will analyse current events, examine the most important trends in the world economy and evaluate their influence on the economic situation facing Swiss companies. The challenge will be to establish the outlook for the Swiss industry in light of the current economic situation.


Please note: the official event language will be English.






In the light of the current global Covid-19 Pandemic, no one really knows where the journey will lead. Economic growth has fallen in a dramatic way during the recent pandemic months and corporate insolvencies around the world are on the rise. In these uncertain times, it is of utmost importance to get reliable information first-hand. This year’s Coface Country Risk Conference, in its new web-based format, will provide you with first-hand assessments and findings from proven experts and give you the possibility to directly raise your questions during the panel-discussion.


The invited experts will elaborate on the following questions in their presentations and a panel discussion:

  • Who is hit most by the Covid 19 shock?
  • Who benefits from the «new normal»?
  • Is this the end of the global value chain as we know it?
  • How will the pandemics change our behaviour?
  • Are there worse pandemics on the way?
  • How can we prepare for a future of global pandemics?
