JVI Newsletter ▪ July 2019    
Please find below the July edition of the JVI Newsletter. This issue includes a number of articles of interest to policy makers and analysts in the region. In particular, I would call your attention to pieces on fiscal topics (corporate tax policy and the IMF’s spring Fiscal Monitor) and the financial sector (bank profitability and macro-prudential policies). I was particularly pleased as well to host presentations on challenges for the EU and on the gender implications of technological change.
Please keep an eye on the JVI website for new courses which come in after our Brochure is printed. For example, I am very happy to have a course in November with the European Central Bank on Real Estate Analysis and Policies. Our 2020 course program should be ready to post by September, so stay tuned!
As always, our goal with these Newsletters is to bring together stories and news from the JVI in one place on a quarterly basis. Among other things, we highlight upcoming deadlines for application to JVI courses. We are naturally very interested in feedback on the content of the Newsletter, and on the activities of the JVI more generally. Please do share your views with us at jvi@jvi.org. Thanks are due to contributors, and to Adam Gersl and Simone Schelling for pulling the Newsletter together. We look forward to seeing many of you here at the JVI during the coming months!
Thomas Richardson, Director
