Webinar: Economic and Social Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the EaP Countries

While many countries, including those in the EU’s Eastern Neighbourhood, started to lift the anti-coronavirus preventive measures, the political, social, and economic consequences of the pandemic remain yet to be seen. It is already apparent that the Eastern Partnership economies are being hit as hard, if not harder than the EU.
