The survey indicates that the economy will recover more quickly from the effects of the second wave. Economic activity was not affected much by the second wave, as the lockdown was imposed during this period to reduce overcrowding. The lockdown in the second wave will have a limited impact on the growth of the economy as compared to the first.

81 percent of CEOs surveyed said that the second wave would not affect their sector’s exports much in the first half of the current year as compared to the same period last year.
