As countries around the globe respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, business operations must adapt to changing rules and new restrictions. Many countries have limited business activity and travel, and many have taken actions that impact employee wages and benefits. In addition, several nations have issued economic stimulus measures that may provide companies with opportunities for loans or other support. Many other countries continue to enact export restrictions on medical supplies while providing favorable import treatment.
We are teaming with a group of international law firms to provide a chart compiling key measures implemented by countries around the world. It is not intended as legal advice but as a practical resource for companies adapting to the global pandemic. We intend to continue to periodically update this resource.
This week’s version of the chart includes updates on the following countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Panama, Chile, China, France, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Philippines, Russia, Spain, Thailand, United States, Vietnam and Turkey.
