Ahead of our press conference to officially announce our forecast update for 23 countries in Central, East and Southeast Europe (CESEE), the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (wiiw) holds a smaller gathering of experts on the region.

This summer, the event takes place in an usually turbulent time with the war in Ukraine in full swing.

The Summer 2022 Experts’ Breakfast will serve as a forum to exchange perspectives on the current and future economic situation in the region with other experts.

During the discussion, we aim to address the following questions:

  • To what extent will Russia’s war in Ukraine cause a lasting increase in energy and food inflation?
  • Which countries in the region will be the most affected by high inflation?
  • How is industry in CESEE being affected by global supply chain disruptions and a decrease in external demand due to the war?
  • Will the services sector benefit from the easing of COVID-19 restrictions?
  • Will rising global interest rates cause a tightening of financial conditions in the region?
  • Are there risks of winter energy rationing in Europe and a global food crisis?
