Impact of government intervention on short term credit insurance during the COVID-19 crisis
and the panelists will discuss on the following questions:
- Given the need for government intervention in 2008/9 as well as 2020/21, is the private market capable of standing on its own feet long term?
- Was the privatisation of the 1990s an unqualified success?
- How easy will it be for governments to withdraw during 2021 without causing insolvencies?
- What is the reaction of private insurers to the government intervention?
- Will governments want to retain some influence or standby arrangements over the longer term?
- As it becomes more fashionable for governments to have an open industrial strategy, should governments become more actively involved in short term credit?
