wiiw will present its latest economic forecasts 2021-2022 for 23 countries of Eastern Europe, with a detailed analysis of the current economic situation and most relevant trends.

The following questions will be addressed:

  • Are we past the worst or is this the start of a second deep downturn?
  • Has Central Europe some potential advantages or areas of resilience versus Western Europe?
  • Which sectors are suffering most, and which are performing relatively better?
  • Will more open economies generally continue to suffer more than less trade- and tourism-dependent ones?
  • How will the crisis affect the bigger structural challenges and opportunities the region faces, such as structural changes in the automotive industry, demographic decline, automation, digitalisation, and the decline of institutional quality and independence?
