Rio Tinto CEO Jean-Sebastien Jacques has warned that global commodity markets will continue to experience volatility in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, while global GDP growth will be hit. Jacques says is too soon to know whether there will be a V-shaped economic recovery. He also says the movement of people and goods will be restricted in the wake of the pandemic, while there could be a fundamental shift in global wealth distribution. Jacques noted that Rio Tinto’s mining operations will be affected by an increase in geopolitical tensions in the post-pandemic environment.
