The virtual course on Past and Current Crises and Future Challenges covered broad examples of basic theoretical and practical examples of historical and possible developments which are very useful to public policymakers and other experts. As a financial specialist from the Central Bank of Armenia I was delighted to learn that crisis examples cover more sectors than financial sector generally. We found out that the COVID-19 is not a rare but next pandemic and healthcare crisis. Presentations covering the climate change, developments in the labor market give huge theoretical basis to move forward into new work spectrum. Overall, the course was very enjoyable, the lecturers were supportive and to the virtuality, it added new fashion to the JVI. I will definitely recommend my colleagues to apply for this and other courses at the JVI. My utmost gratitude to the JVI and the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (WIIW) for another amazing journey with you.  Hayk Babayan, Central Bank of Armenia Virtual Crisis Course: Past and Current Crises and Future Challenges (November 22-December 3, 2021)

The FPP virtual course, with its well-designed structure, presented the theory of macroeconomics in a simple way, while providing the opportunity to put theory into practice. Throughout the course, key economic policies were discussed along with case studies, and the lecturers patiently listened to and addressed comments by participants. As participants continuously shared their own country experiences, lecturers were continuously bringing theoretical and practical background on when, where, how and why were various tools and policies used. I sincerely recommend everyone interested in macroeconomics and policy-making to enroll in this course to apply theory into practice and to gain different perspectives on economic policymaking.  İbrahim Özbek, Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey.

This course provides a strong theoretical background as well as practical framework to identify macroeconomic imbalances and adjust policy measures accordingly to eliminate those vulnerabilities. It also gives an in-depth coverage of the linkages between the main macroeconomic sectors, and enhances understanding of the monetary and fiscal policy combined implications in the medium term. Moreover, the Covid-related case study is particularly relevant nowadays. Thank you to the IMF and JVI for the opportunity to participate in this virtual course!

Diagnosing an economy can be compared with a health checkup, a comprehensive procedure that implies running different tests and interpreting them on the basis of strong theoretical knowledge. The course on Macroeconomic Diagnostics embraced all of it. Thus, it was a great opportunity to plunge into the mechanism of macroeconomics with a real case-study. Personally, I enjoyed sharing views and experience with the lecturers and other participants in a very friendly virtual environment. Veronika Zagoyti, Central Bank of Russian Federation.
