JVI Newsletter ▪ May 2022    

Dear Friends of the JVI,

The last few weeks have been momentous for the JVI. On April 23, the Austrian National Bank, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Finance, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) extended by four years their partnership in the JVI. The IMF’s Managing Director came to the JVI on May 13 for a hybrid meeting with JVI staff and IMF staff in Vienna. After a few false starts, we expect to resume face-to-face course delivery soon. This process will start with the course on Climate Change and Green Finance (June 20-24) and will be gradual (many courses will still be delivered virtually over the summer). So please keep an eye on our course schedule for 2022 for more opportunities to visit us in Vienna! 

In this edition of the JVI newsletter, you will find reports on a course recently delivered on Public Governance and Structural Reforms. Recent webinars have covered the Economic Outlook for EuropeMeasurement, Causes, and Consequences of Economic Inequality, and How to Achieve Inclusive Growth. It also includes a farewell interview with our departing JVI colleague Reiner Martin.

Please mark your calendars for the upcoming 2022 Annual Lecture! For the JVI’s 30th anniversary, Professor Marek Belka will take us on a 3-decade tour of success and challenges in Central and Eastern Europe (June 17).

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
