At the event, after providing our Business & Economic Outlook for Ukraine in 2024, we will then hold two separate panels examining the outlook for the war and the business environment

These officials will give their outlook for the war next year and beyond, taking into consideration issues related to weapons production and usage, Western support, and Russia’s capabilities.
