The following questions will be addressed during the webinar:

  • How much longer will the coordinated upswing across much of the global economy continue, and to what extent will CESEE continue to benefit from this?
  • What are the medium-term drivers of growth in the region?
  • How great are the risks of overheating in parts of CESEE?
  • Can Russia and the CIS escape from their low growth trajectory?
  • What are the major global and regional risks facing the region in the next three years, how likely are they to materialise, and what will their impacts be?
  • Is there a risk of a formal east-west split within the EU, and what would this mean for growth in the region?
  • What are the implications of tighter labour markets and higher wages in CESEE for migration flows within and from the region?
  • Has CESEE hit the limits of its current growth model? Is the region condemned to a permanent “semi-periphery trap”?
