The event will focus on the key challenges for the regional economies – including climate transition, economic resilience, financial inclusion, innovation and post-pandemic new normal - with particular attention to the post-pandemic policy adjustments as well as implications of the heightened uncertainty arising from the escalation of geopolitical risks in Eastern Europe. Improving access to finance for the SMEs is another issue that will be covered. During the event, the Annual NBRNM Award for the best research paper in macroeconomics and banking systems will be announced.
