The special theme of this year's CEEI is Achieving balanced growth in the CESEE countries
The economic crisis in several European countries has illustrated the importance of sustainable economic policies and of institutions promoting such policies. Achieving sustainable economic growth is of utmost importance in solving the current economic problems. In many cases, countries' economic difficulties are not just a result of adverse external shocks or even mistakes in economic policy, but rather reflect long-term problems inherent in economic and political institutions. At the CEEI 2012, we provide a forum for policymakers as well as academic and non-academic experts to discuss the prerequisites of balanced and sustainable economic development in the CESEE region, and also elsewhere. Topics covered range from the most recent challenges for the banking sector to the unwinding of large external imbalances.Attendance by invitation only.
