JVI Newsletter ▪ March 2023    

Dear Friends of the JVI,

This newsletter reports on recent courses covering a broad range of interesting and diverse topics, such as Understanding, Assessing, and Managing Fiscal Risks, Cyber Risk Supervision, Nowcasting, and HR Issues and Compliance. The JVI recently hosted the first in-person meeting of the Southeastern Europe Community of Practice on Tax Arrears Management. A webinar provided an update on reform proposals for EU fiscal rules. We were also very pleased to welcome several high-level visitors, including the Director of the IMF’s Institute for Capacity Development, the Ambassador of Uzbekistan to Austria, and a delegation from the Academy of the Ministry of Finance of Georgia.

This week, our main counterparts in JVI countries and most of our partners are in Vienna for our third in-person Meeting of Training Directors. They are giving us feedback, including on how they see training priorities in the region, and we are also discussing how to increase the impact of training provided by the JVI and its partners. More on this in the next newsletter!

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. 

Hervé Joly
Director, Joint Vienna Institute
