  • Will labour shortages in the region get worse, and what does this mean for growth?
  • Why is inflation so low, and will it rise in the coming years?
  • Will increased authoritarianism and reductions in institutional quality and independence have economic implications?
  • How well is CESEE prepared for the new digital economy and automation?
