Masterclass: Doing Business in Post-Communist Countries

08/20/2020 12:30 pm 08/20/2020 01:30 pm Australia/Melbourne Masterclass: Doing Business in Post-Communist Countries

30 years since the fall of the Berlin wall

The fall of the Berlin Wall catalysed huge change across the world. Does business with post-communist countries mean business as usual?

The fall of the Berlin Wall catalysed huge change across the world, from new market economies in post-Soviet countries to astonishing economic growth in Asia.

Thirty years later, however, questions remain around how to do business with the hugely varying economic and political systems of post-communist countries.

Does business with post-communist countries mean business as usual?

Join Monash Business School's Dr Gennadi Kazakevitch as he delves into this topic, drawing on his own fascinating experience and research into market structures and competition, microeconomic reforms of public utilities, and comparative studies of economic reforms in the former communist countries.

From 1985-1991 Dr Kazakevitch was a member of a think tank in Moscow working on Gorbachev’s economic reforms. He advised the post-communist Latvian Government on energy policy and, most recently, drafted submissions on economic policies to the Federal Senate's Economic Committee.

As the former Deputy Head of Monash Business School’s Department of Economics, Dr Kazakevitch developed and coordinated a broad department coursework portfolio across all campuses and programs in Australia and internationally.

This Masterclass webinar will take place via Zoom and includes an opportunity for Q&A.
