  • Spotlight on CIS: Is the region back on the radar for lenders? How are the dynamics different between the Russian and CIS market?
  • Generating a relationship model in the CIS

Associate Michaela Schmiederova will moderate "The role of multilaterals and ECAs as a critical source of liquidity in the region," and Business and Finance partner Yulia Cherkassova and associates Alexander Gasparyan and Liya Grishaeva will also be in attendance.
