Fostering growth and handling tumultuous periods are the primary obligations of an economist. "Competitiveness" is the umbrella of concepts, tools, and policies that can serve to catalyze growth and buffer crisis. Integrating the environmental and social aspects of life into the discussions about competitiveness and disrupting the traditional economic models related to it was what I liked the most from the "Competitiveness, Growth and Crisis" course. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the insights conveyed were distinctly beneficial.  Olsi Pajo - Bank of Albania Austrian Authorities Virtual Course on Competitiveness, Growth and Crisis, March 01-12, 2021

It is challenging to offer a course on competitiveness - a very elusive and ambiguously defined concept, especially on the macro level. That is why I highly appreciate the issues discussed during the course and the practical approach to all topics. The idea of "competitiveness", competitiveness indicators, and a policy related to competitiveness were fully unpacked during the course.   Magdalena Olczyk – Gdansk University of Technology, Poland Austrian Authorities Virtual Course on Competitiveness, Growth and Crisis, March 01-12, 2021

“The FPP course, presented virtually, has helped me to improve my understanding of how to diagnose macroeconomic imbalances and correct them through a coordinated set of adjustment policies. It was a hands-on and team approach and we have considered on a specific example of the country case and special scenarios (Covid-19 pandemic), with the help of well-trained և knowledgeable lecturers. I recommend this course to all my colleagues.” Ms. Gayane Barikyan, Central Bank of Armenia, virtual Financial Programming and Policies Course, February 08-19, 2021

“The JVI virtual course “Financial Programming and Policies” allowed me to deepen my understanding of the interlinkages between macroeconomic sectors and provided an extensive overview of the IMF’s financial programming framework. The case study, which entailed conducting a realistic financial programming exercise in groups, helped me not only to consolidate my knowledge, but also to understand the trade-offs between different policy choices, pre- and post-COVID-19. I also benefited from hearing about the lecturers’ and participants’ experience with various practical issues and challenges. Many thanks to the JVI team for organizing such an excellent course!” Ms. Raluca Enache, National Bank of Romania, virtual Financial Programming and Policies Course, February 08-19, 2021

"I attended the virtual training called Banking Supervision within the Basel Framework in January 2021. The course was designed to include all the key aspects of the Basel Framework. It was very useful to explain the Basel Framework in a way that reflects on-site supervisors' perspectives. The course content was also supported with case studies and real life examples. Although the online course had its drawbacks, it was very efficient and well organized. I highly recommend this course to all on-site supervisors."

I attended the JVI "Financial Inclusion" virtual training on January 2021. The course provided knowledge on the main indices for financial inclusion, why they matter, presented growing areas of interest in the field, and what are the basic actions needed to facilitate financial inclusion.  The lecturers where excellent, providing knowledge at the highest degree, as well as stirring an active conversation on each topic, allowing to thoroughly explore these topics in a pleasant and friendly environment.  The course surpassed my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone who is working in these fields, whether she wants to build her knowledge or widen it. Maya Haran Rosen, Bank of Israel, Virtual course on Financial Inclusion, 25-29 January 2021
