On 21 October 2015, the AEB held a breifing by Gabriel Di Bella, Resident Representative of the International Monetary Fund in the Russian Federation — “Russia: Recent Economic Developments & Challenges”.
This event became the continuation of a most welcome and longstanding six-year tradition. Joerg Bongartz, Chairman of the AEB Banking Committee, Chairman of the Board, Deutsche Bank, and Stuart Lawson, Chairman of the AEB Finance & Investments Committee, Executive Director, EY, moderated the event and assisted Mr. di Bella in delivering his brief to all the attendees.
The IMF Resident Representative in RF talked about shocks affecting Russia’s economy, policy reaction: monetary and fiscal policy responses, the current economic situation, impact in the region, and medium-term challenges, risks and mitigating factors.
The briefing was followed by a questions-and-answers session.
