VEB.RF sends its best wishes to all partners to remain safe during these volatile times. VEB.RF and IDFC are inviting you to participate in an Online Conference "From Pandemic to Recovery.
The Role of Development Banks
" aligned with
the First Global Summit of Public Development Banks "Finance in Common"
organized by IDFC that will take place in Paris this November. The Online Conference will take place on September 9, 2020 at 14.00 – 16.45 (Moscow time, CET+1).
Being planned at the height of the global pandemic, the Conference aims to highlight significant role of development banks in searching the right balance between short-term incentives and long-term vision supporting national economies in this turbulent period.
The Conference gives an occasion to focus on two main issues that are at the core of every after-shock recovery: the well-being of small and medium enterprises and the sustainable infrastructure.
The year 2020 posed unorecedented challenges for humanity, requiring not only a quick, effective and coordinated response from all participants of the international community. The pandemic with its following economic, social and environmental challenges raise important questions for countries about how to build a more resilient economy. For the first time in many decades, civilization has a chance to reset the existing order and move to a "new", better normality, where the Sustainable Development Goals become a "compass" that guides the economic recovery.
The Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres
ECD Secretary General Ángel Gurría
will join the Conference with the recorded interventions. The Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations Mrs. Amina J. Mohammed and Head of Islamic Development Bank Dr. Bandar Hajjar
will honor the Conference with the personal participation. The IDFC Chairperson Rémy Rioux
will co-host the event.
