At the moment it is hard to forecast the economic developments and investment climate in the future. This event served as a platform to take stock of the challenges facing companies operating in Russia and to look at how long and deep the crisis may be. The event gave the audience the opportunity to hear the thoughts of the speakers Tobias Luepke, EY, Tom Adshead, Macro-Advisory Ltd, and Arthur Iliev, Clifford Chance, and to discuss with them the prognosis for the Russian economy, government policy, import substitution, the investment climate, sanctions, the free floating rouble, etc. The event was moderated by Stuart Lawson, Chairman of the AEB Finance & Investments Committee, EY. The welcome speech was made by Ruslan Kokarev, AEB COO.
