JVI Newsletter ▪ October 2023    

Dear Friends of the JVI,

This newsletter reports on three recent courses: Policies for SME development in Eastern Partner Countries, an OECD course focusing on digitalization, monitoring & evaluation, and regulatory impact assessment. Investment and Investment Finance, an EIB course, is a staple of the JVI’s curriculum and discusses best practices and standards and how the EIB can support countries in the region. Finally, Monetary and Fiscal Policy Analysis with DSGE Models, one of the most advanced courses delivered by the IMF, focused on the design and use of such models for economic policymaking. A webinar discussed how GovTech can transform public finance. A short piece reports on my visit to Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan in September 2023. Finally, please meet Steven Cao Vu Nguyen, who joined the JVI as Finance Assistant/Program Officer earlier this month.  

Our entire course curriculum for 2024 is now available on our website; please have a look and spread the word!  

If you have any questions, comments, or feedback of any kind, please write us a note at jvi@jvi.org. Many thanks to Rilind Kabashi, our Editor, Maša Valenko, and all the contributors to this Newsletter.

Director, Joint Vienna Institute
