For the past twenty years the Bank of Finland Institute for Emerging Economies (BOFIT) and other members of the European System of Central Banks (ESCB) have alternated in organizing workshops devoted to economic research on various emerging markets. In 2023 the XX ESCB Emerging Markets Workshop was organized at the Bank of Finland facility in Saariselkä, Finnish Lapland, just as the first workshop of the series was organized in 2003.
