- CESifo Workshop on ??Enlarging the Euro Area
- Munich, Germany
- Starting in 2007, the first new EU member states (NMS) will also join the Euro Area. Although the adoption of the Euro by the NMS completes the recent eastern Enlargement of the EU, there are still many open questions concerning the accession to the Euro Area. Several policy issues (economic structure, labor market developments, productivity growth and business cycles) are specific for the new member states, which pertains questions related to the applicability of the optimum currency area theory. Other issues are of broader nature including among others the central bank policies on the way to the euro, disinflation and inflation targeting in the NMS, banking and financial sector, exchange rates and exchange rate regimes, ERM II, exchange rate volatility, trade and monetary union, and political economy. In this workshop, the most important issues will be discussed. [gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
