In this introductory JVI vidcast, Norbert Funke gives an overview of the JVI, explaining what it is, what it does, and what makes JVI training so special. He touches on the JVI's history, courses and seminars, target audience, and partners. From hands-on courses that blend theory and practice to peer-to-peer exchanges between country officials from a range of different countries, participants can expect to benefit tremendously, often analyzing case studies related to economic challenges in the region. Courses taught by, or in coordination with the IMF, Austrian Authorities, EBRD, EC, EIB, OECD, World Bank, WTO, or selected central banks, cover the most up-to-date thinking on economic policy issues.
