Антикризисная терапия: зарубежные эксперты Фонда Росконгресс о мерах поддержки бизнеса

The Roscongress Foundation launched a series of video blogs that involve the Foundation’s international partners. They will address business support measures and provide insight into economic environment around the globe. Roscongress will post the experts’ video blogs on all its online resources. The first episodes will review existing practices in France, Germany, and China.

Crisis relief measures mainly target saving national economies. Governments of most countries adopt comprehensive programmes to support business and face enormous expenses. Thus, France allocates over 15% of its GDP, China — 6.6%, and Germany — almost 5%.

Pavel Shinsky, General Director of the French-Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry will look into the six key measures France has put into effect to support business. Klaus Mangold, Russia’s Honorary Counsel for Baden-Württemberg, regular participant of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, and one of Roscongress’ key partners will speak about existing initiatives in Germany. Zhou Liqun, Chairman of the Union of Chinese Entrepreneurs in Russia will focus on the effect the novel coronavirus will have on the economic cooperation between Russia and China.

«The Roscongress Foundation has joined efforts with its international and global partners to create an independent ecosystem that would be capable of resolving the most pressing needs of the global business community. As of today, we have established cooperation with 122 organizations from 69 countries of the world, which include international organizations, various business associations, media, financial and development institutes, as well as public and private companies. Many problems the global economy is facing now are unprecedented. That is precisely why we are regularly updating information on newsworthy economic recommendations and business initiatives the world has to offer in this time of hardship,» shared Alexandra Ogneva, Deputy CEO and Head of International and Regional Cooperation Directorate of the Roscongress Foundation.

The Roscongress Foundation posts expert opinions of the Roscongress Foundation’s partners on its official online resources — its website, YouTube channel, and Facebook group.
