This ADBI Featured Speaker webinar will spotlight Alexander Plekhanov of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), who will present EBRD’s 2022-23 Transition Report on the policy implications of  “business unusual” conditions in the global economy.

He will discuss the effects of COVID-19-induced debt accumulation, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, people displacement in Europe, and supply chain bottlenecks that have led to soaring energy and food prices. He will also assess shifting trade patterns in Central Asia and the Caucasus.
