«Is it the perfect Storm?»

The world is facing one of the biggest crisis since World War II: the health crisis is not behind us, supply chains are broken, energy prices are skyrocketing, inflation is at its highest level in 40 years, there is a lack of professionals everywhere, international sanctions are rapidly evolving while autocrats are waging war on the West and its values. How to navigate through it?

This year's Country Risk Conference will provide you with the main keys to understanding the current crisis, which is causing many structural changes, to help you assess and mitigate your risks.
