Webinar: Economic consequences and how data can help your business during the Russia-Ukraine war
In light of the latest critical developments in the Russian-Ukrainian war, we invite you to join us for a webinar to hear from our expert on the latest impact on the CEE economy and how can data help your business during this crisis. Grzegorz Sielewicz, Regional Economist Coface Central & Eastern Europe, and Arturas Potelis, Sales Manager at Coface Baltics, will give you an overview of the risk assessments to help you understand the impact on your businesses.
Coface is closely monitoring the changes of the Russian war against Ukraine and its consequences in terms of economic and commercial risks.
These recent events have led Coface to downgrade its country risk assessment for Russia. Our regional economist will explain the effects of risk assessment in more detail.
