We are organizing a Special Issue entitled “Challenges and Opportunities Faced by Economic Development under COVID-19 Pandemic” that will be published in World, which is a multidisciplinary and open access journal devoted to past, present, and future links between economic, political, social, and/or environmental issues. More information about the journal can be found at https://www.mdpi.com/journal/world.
The spread of the COVID-19 virus is a global health emergency involving the health authorities of all countries in an attempt to fight this new pandemic.
The pandemic has caused panic among people, and many governments have proposed control and preventive interventions such as closing cities and airports. Different intervention measures also have different degrees of impact on the economy and society. Countries such as those in Europe and the United States have adopted an epidemic prevention strategy of coexisting with the virus; Asian countries have adopted stricter control measures against the epidemic, such as China's zero-tolerance policy towards the virus.
Mutations of the virus are ongoing, and the impact of infection is still growing, despite the success of vaccine development. Furthermore, from a social and economic point of view, the impact is enormous.
Strict epidemic prevention and control can help reduce the risk of infection, but interpersonal isolation and economic closure have severely impacted social and economic activities. However, governments’ relief packages support people through economic difficulties, and policies to boost consumption have stimulated and driven economic recovery. The application of digital tools has become an alternative mode of operation for education, business, and social activities.
This Special Issue aims to publish evidence and observations in the field, covering, but not limited to, the following: economics; management; business; education; leisure; tourism; hospitality; humanities; society; public health; resource allocation; epidemic prevention policy; preventive measures; supply chain; logistics; risk; communication; case studies.
We welcome the submission of notes, reviews, original research articles, short communications, systematic reviews, and case studies targeting any of these core research questions, as the main goal of this Special Issue is to explore and address the core research issues in social science caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
