The Asia Business Law Journal (ABLJ) just issued a comprehensive report on various measures of governments across Asia to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. The measures have forced them to resort to strict lockdowns at one hand, but on the other have brought their economies to a standstill, which in turn, have presented a twin challenge: a health emergency coupled with an economic crisis. Given the unprecedented nature of the crisis, policymakers have resorted to a variety of fiscal and policy measures, some are ad-hoc, some may be here to stay. As reported by ABLJ,  making sense of these changes is a challenge in itself, especially for businesses that operate across markets in Asia.

To help the readers to understand the changes, the report covers multiple jurisdictions, from Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam to Indonesia.
