This event, hosted by UK think tank Chatham House looks at how Covid-19 may affect the region’s development.
As with the rest of the world, the COVID-19 pandemic has put healthcare systems in the Central Asian states under severe strain. It has also affected the key drivers of their economies – trade and migrant remittances. The governments’ responses differ in speed and scale, and there are greater concerns than ever about their ability to deliver for their citizens. This event will explore in detail how the region’s development may be affected. The speakers will cover issues of external debt, humanitarian aid distribution, effects on regional cooperation, and relations with Russia and the Eurasian Economic Union.Click here to book your place
