JVI Newsletter ▪ July 2022    

Dear Friends of the JVI,

We hope this finds you well, as the summer season is starting. I am happy to report that, after a two-year hiatus, we had the great pleasure of welcoming course participants in Vienna for the course on Climate Change and Green Finance (June 20-24). The return to classroom delivery will be gradual over this summer, and we expect to be back to the “new normal” this autumn. We have developed and implemented a Covid-19 protocol for course participants, which we hope will make the return to the classroom as safe as possible. This protocol will be adjusted as needed, based on the evolution of the pandemic situation in the region.

In this edition of the JVI newsletter, you will also find reports on courses recently delivered on bank restructuring, the European Green Deal, and the Tax Administration Diagnostic Assessment Tool. Recent webinars have covered the Regional Economic Outlook for the Caucasus and Central Asia and Shockwaves from the War in Ukraine. In the 2022 Annual Lecture, Professor Marek Belka analyzed 3 decades of success and challenges in Central and Eastern Europe.

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.
