On April 23, 2020, CERBA held its National Event with Chris Weafer "Effects of COVID-19 on the economies of Eurasian countries." 

Chris Weafer, the Founder and the Chief Executive Officer of Macro-Advisory Ltd., is acknowledged to be the top-rated Russian market strategist. His prior experience includes working for major financial corporations in Russia and the world, he is widely quoted in the international financial press and appears regularly on BBC, CNN, CNBC, and Bloomberg, and other news sources. The webinar was attended by more than 100 business representatives from Canada and the Eurasian region.

At the beginning of his presentation, Mr. Weafer has guided the audience through the main points of pandemic development in Russia and former CIS countries, also touching the situation in Mongolia and Central Asia. He examined overall effects of the current COVID 19 pandemic on the political and economic situation in the Eurasian region, covering the economic macro scenarios for Russia and CIS countries for the period of 2020-21, particularly the impact of the crisis on budget, currency and national projects, effect on various industries, and other aspects. He also highlighted the current situation in the oil market as the second major factor that influences the situation in the region. At the end of his speech, Mr. Weafer has also discussed the expected phases of governments’ response to managing the crisis and, which is even more important, the following recovery period. 

The presentation session was followed by the Q&A session moderated by CERBA National Chairman, Mr. Gilles Breton.
