JVI Newsletter ▪ October 2022    

Dear Friends of the JVI,

I’m happy to announce that JVI courses are fully back to the classroom in Vienna. You will find in this newsletter reports on recent in-person courses on Safeguards Assessments of Central BanksPublic Private Partnerships, the Future of Taxation, and Technical Barriers to Trade Agreement. They illustrate well the broad range of courses available at the JVI, thanks to our many partnerships. A webinar presented Available Online Learning Opportunities from the IMF, while another one discussed how digitalization shapes the future of taxation. We had the visit of Austrian Federal Finance Minister Brunner, who engaged with JVI course participants on how rigorous and quantitative analysis can lead to better policymaking. The third virtual meeting of JVI Training Directors took place in October 2022 and provided useful feedback from users on the resumption of classroom delivery. Maximilian Fandl joined the JVI economics faculty in September. Michele Burlington-Green celebrated her 30th anniversary at the JVI.

Last but not least, a large part of our course schedule for 2023 is available on the JVI website! 

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.
