Webinar on May 15th
On May 15th, Dr. Ricardo Giucci, Team Leader and Robert Kirchner, Deputy Team Leader of the German Economic Team (GET) participated in the online event on “Measures of the German Federal Government to support business during the Corona crisis”. The webinar was organised by the Centre for Economic Strategy (CES). In his study, which was prepared together with Woldemar Walter, Consultant in the German Economic Team, Dr. Giucci and Mr. Kirchner presented the German measures to support companies and freelancers and underlined that such a policy would enable a quick recovery of the economy. Hlib Vyshlinsky, Executive Director of CES, presented the Ukrainian measures.
With a total of 28 participants from think tanks, the press and economic policy institutions, a good discussion arose in which the measures were compared and questions were asked about the financing of the measures. In particular, the need for an IMF agreement to finance Ukraine’s economic policy measures for fighting the crisis was emphasised.
