📌CEFTA: Shaping the region to fit into the "EU shoes"

➡The modern Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA) is seen as a springboard for stimulating economic development and the EU accession agenda in the Western Balkan region and Moldova. But does it fit the “EU shoes”? What is its role in the Parties’ EU accession path? Will CEFTA prepare the region to speak with one voice within the EU? These and other questions was discussed at the lecture delivered by the Director of the CEFTA Secretariat Emir Djikic.

🔴Speaker: Emir Djikic, Director of the CEFTA Secretariat
🔴Discussant: Silvana Mojsovska, Professor in International Economics, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje
🔴Chair: Vassilis Monastiriotis, Director of LSEE

The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated a massive policy response. Central banks and governments have worked closely, unleashing counter-cyclical policies of unprecedented scale and speed in 2020-21. For the first time in modern economic history, such policies have worked not only in advanced countries, but also in emerging markets. How have central banks in small open emerging markets achieved this success?
