Identifying future levers of growth amidst a 'new normal' in China [On-demand webinar]

Video-Identifying future levers of growth amidst a 'new normal' in China [On-demand webinar]

China being one of the first countries impacted by the COVID-19 epidemic in the early months of 2020, displayed great resilience and a robust economic outlook to bounce back to growth during the second half of the year. Watch this on-demand webinar to learn more.

Being one of the few countries to grow, China's GDP grew at the rate of 2.3% in 2020 vs 2019. However, the impacts of COVID-19 on Chinese consumers' behaviours and sentiments were more long-term, with newer product opportunities, channels and occasions giving rise to a 'new normal' post-epidemic. Consumers are more health conscious, and product innovations now focus more on well-being benefits that enhance mental needs in F&B categories. Overall, manufacturers need to establish a competitive advantage and embrace growing channels / platforms like online, social commerce, or O2O to strengthen their occasion-based communication and let consumers get what they want when they need it.
