EBRD Business Development team is inviting guests to a webinar entitled “Opportunities in the infrastructure sector in Central Asia and Mongolia” on Thursday 22nd October 2020 – from 08:00 to 09:30 BST.

We expect participation from US, Korean, Japanese. Indian, New Zealand & Australian companies.

There is a growing consensus among G20 countries as to the importance of infrastructure, the permanent assets that a society needs for the orderly operation of its economy, as a driver of growth, jobs and competitiveness. International Financial Institutions (IFIs) such as EBRD play a critical role in improving project design and structure in order to attract private capital. IFIs lower transaction costs, risk and risk perception and they support the institutional and legislative reforms needed to encourage the rules of law and ensure that projects are sustainable and welfare enhancing.

The EBRD’s portfolio is almost €2 billion in transport and municipal and environmental infrastructure projects in the Central Asia. There is a substantial scope for private sector companies seeking opportunities offered by projects financed by the EBRD in the region. This webinar will offer an insight from EBRD experts on the region, as well as opportunities and challenges in the infrastructure sector in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Mongolia. This will be an interactive debate with an ample room for Q&A where you will:

  • Hear first-hand about the economic outlook and business environment in these countries.
  • Discover strategic priorities of the EBRD in the infrastructure sector, and policy dialogue with governments.
  • Learn about successful EBRD projects and potential opportunities in the region.

The EBRD representatives presenting will be:

Ana Draskovic (Moderator) – Director, Business Development Group
Ekaterina Miroshnik – Director, Head of Infrastructure Eurasia
Hannes Takacs – Associate Director, Head of Mongolia
Agris Preimanis – Director, Head of Kazakhstan
