The main questions addressed will include:

  • Most economies in CESEE are currently growing quite strongly, but can this continue in the context of a slowdown in the eurozone and mounting risks to global trade?
  • How will increasingly acute labour shortages affect growth in CESEE in the coming years?
  • Is the region still overheating, and if so what are the areas of concern?
  • Why is inflation so low in most of the region?
  • Why are Russia and Turkey doing so badly, and are their problems short-term or structural in nature?
  • Is China’s Belt and Road Initiative good news for CESEE, and especially the Western Balkans?
  • Can the region continue to convergence with Western Europe over the medium term?
  • What are the main risks to growth in CESEE over the medium term?

The presentation will be in English.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions.
