By answering the Survey, our members provided us with up-to-date data about the situation of European companies in Russia.

 06.10.20 - 06.10.20  10:00-12:30   AEB Webinar: European Countries Experience in Overcoming COVID-19 Crisis 
The AEB North-Western Regional Committee is pleased to invite you to take part in the webinar “European countries experience in overcoming COVID-19 crisis and recovering economies”, which is organized in partnership with the Consulate General of the Netherlands, Consulate General of Finland, Consulate General of Israel and the Russian-German Chamber of Commerce (AHK). The webinar will be held on 06 October 2020, from 10:00 to 12:30 (Moscow Time) on the online platform Zoom. The COVID-19 pandemic and the economic shutdowns are dealing a severe blow to the global economy, and the European countries are not an exception. After an unprecedented collapse in the first half of the year, economic output started to recover following the easing of containment measures and the initial re-opening of businesses, but the pace of recovery has lost some momentum more recently. New restrictions are being imposed in some European countries to tackle the resurgence of the virus. Uncertainty remains high and the strength of the economy recovery varies markedly between European countries and between business sectors. How European economies were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in general? Which industries were the most badly affected? What support measures did the countries’ governments and EU provide to the business? What are the measures foreseen to speed recovery and blunt long-term adverse effects? What are the general economic forecasts by countries and when supposedly the economies may reach the pre-pandemic level? What strategies and actions different businesses have undertaken to stay afloat during the crisis? These are the main issues that will be discussed by distinguished economists and business representatives from the Netherlands, Finland, Germany and Israel during the webinar.

Now everyone is trying to adapt to the new reality called "COVID-19". We apply new approaches or adapt "old" ones, offer new services, and consider new options and opportunities for communication with our target audience. We are faced with questions, some of which are listed below: How to properly prioritize external communications in a situation of limited financial resources and communications? How to choose the right service providers or optimize work with current suppliers? What are the new requirements at the stage of selection of service providers or internal staff and interaction with them? Are there any advantages for international companies compared to Russian ones in terms of borrowing unique technologies or approaches to obtain "the best value for money" in terms of external communications? What is the probability that the foreign approach will work in Russia? We have invited high-level experts in the field of external communications with significant experience in Russia and abroad in large companies, who will share their knowledge and experience with you. ADMISSION: Complimentary. RSVP: Please confirm your participation to, specifying your full name, company, position, and contact information. Access to webinar will be provided upon your registration.
