Riga Board Room Lunch 2024

Hosted by Pedersen & Partners, in partnership with the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga, this event offers a unique opportunity to gain inspiration and broaden your horizons.



Our distinguished executive Board Room Lunch speaker will address the topic of "The return of Geopolitics in Europe: Reshaping Baltic and European Markets in the shadow of the war in Ukraine"

  • How Baltic and European business are navigating the uncertainty caused by the war in Ukraine?
  • Has the new geopolitical situation affected attractiveness of the Baltic status for foreign direct investment?
  • How are companies circumventing trade relations with Russia and complying with sanctions?
  • How corruption in Ukraine causes additional risks and uncertainties?
