The Financial Times is launching a series of webinars to discuss the key issues facing economies, businesses and society.

The coverage will also include the long-term effects on the ongoing pandemic.

The new series, “FT Digital Dialogues” is being launched by FT Live, the conferences and events arm of the Financial Times.

The free online video conversations will feature interviews and talks with leading analysts, strategists, and economic and business leaders on the current economic crisis and how it compares to past global upheavals.

“FT Live has an important role to play in helping our readers and clients understand these uncertain times,” said Orson Francescone, managing director of FT Live. “With our extraordinary coverage of the crisis and unmatched convening power, the FT is uniquely positioned to respond to this moment by connecting audiences with experts in engaging new formats. We’re proud to be launching this new service now.”

The first FT Digital Dialogue event, titled The Global Economic Emergency will be held on 1 April at 16:00 BST (GMT+1). Chris Giles, the FT’s economics editor, will moderate a virtual panel with:

  • Martin Wolf, chief economics commentator, Financial Times;
  • Lord Adair Turner, senior fellow at the Institute for New Economic Thinking and former chairman of the UK Financial Services Authority; and
  • Rain Newton-Smith, chief economist at the Confederation of British Industry.

Those interested in attending The Global Economic Emergency can sign up for the session here. A link will be shared with registrants. Additional events will be announced in the coming weeks on live.ft.com.
