In our final edition of the year we look back at 2020 and forward to 2021…

We revisit the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the world economy and financial and commodity markets in 2020. We look at the projected recovery in advanced and emerging markets in 2021 and outline several key risks that could derail the return to growth. Against a backdrop of heightened uncertainty, we discuss the factors shaping prospects for Australian rural, resources, manufacturing and services exporters in the coming year.
