The coronavirus pandemic has affected people all over the world. Due to quarantine restrictions to prevent the spread of the virus, the business sector has greatly suffered causing several companies to close permanently, affecting employment. While some are trying to bounce back, adapt to the new normal or shift to a different venture, business owners and their workers are still faced with so much uncertainty.

The political climate, monetary policies and the changing nature of work brought upon by the pandemic continue to challenge the outlook of business leaders everywhere. With the global economic future at stake, companies must continue to evolve, diversify, and adapt while taking calculated risks that yield good returns.

CNN Philippines will make sense of it all in “The Exchange,” a 30-minute business program that breaks down the business news of the week both here and around the world. But more than the facts and the figures, the program gives meaning to the cycle of ups and downs in business and the overall economy. Conversations with captains of industry and subject matter experts are among the highlights of the program. Anchored by CNN Philippines Senior Anchor Rico Hizon, The Exchange premieres on Friday, July 17 at 8:00 pm.

Program segments include Stock Tracker, which shares the stock market performance, Work-Life balance, which features CEOs and his or her life outside the boardroom and Change Reaction, which shows how companies are re-setting, re-positioning, and innovating as they go forward, while having in mind, the social responsibility we have for each other.

“On every given week, The Exchange will discuss the heart and soul of every business. We’ll look beyond financial news stories and tackle how exactly they impact our day to day lives” said The Exchange anchor Rico Hizon.

The Exchange with Rico Hizon airs Fridays at 8:00 pm on CNN Philippines. Watch it live via Free TV channel 9, Sky Cable channel 14, Cignal TV channel 10, and livestream through and
