After the Shock: COVID-19 Implications for Recovery in the Aerospace & Defense Industry


May 6 - 6 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the day-to-day operations and economic outlooks of a wide variety of industries, including aerospace and defense (A&D). This webinar, co-hosted by the Aerospace Industries Association and KPMG, will set the current health crisis into context based on perspectives and lessons from past major disruptive events, such as the September 11 terrorist attack and the 2008 recession. It will also focus on the next steps of not just overcoming the crisis, but also planning for the recovery.

Join our featured presenters for a robust discussion:

  • Remy Nathan, Senior Vice President, Policy, Aerospace Industries Association
  • Jim Adams – National Aerospace & Defense Leader, KPMG LLP
  • Jono Anderson – Partner, Strategy, Growth, and Innovation

As part of this discussion, we will review KPMG Chief Economist Constance Hunter’s analysis of the current crisis’ broad economic impact, examine how the shock will affect commercial aerospace and defense differently, and provide a perspective on how the situation affects everyone involved in the industry, from government agencies to businesses. We will also discuss how industries evolve and reshape at these inflection points, using examples from the past and estimates of what we are seeing and likely to see through recovery into a new reality.
