On Tuesday, 30 October the International Institute for the Study of Cross-Border Investment and M&A will hold its annual symposium in Paris. Dimitry Afanasiev, member of the Partners' Committee of Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners will moderate a session entitled ‘Emerging Markets M&A and Expansion’.
Within the framework of this panel, top level representatives of global businesses active in the BRICS and CIVETS countries, will discuss how current political and financial disruptions influence M&A trends in the emerging markets.
The Symposium represents an effort by its founding universities, New York University, Peking University and Cambridge, and affiliated professionals and companies, to foster dialogue and connections among the world’s leading experts and thought leaders about key issues, trends and developments in the global deal markets. The goal is to encourage pragmatic, de-politicized analysis and study of the market dynamics that fuel business expansion through M&A, and of the financial, legal, governmental and societal frameworks that facilitate or hinder such activity.
