As the Croatian National Bank continues to promote analysis and sharing of views on challenges that countries face within the EU in an endeavour to support sustainable development of the Croatian economy, it is our pleasure to invite you to the presentation of the Report Central Europe: Fit for the Future.

The presentation of the Report prepared by Central European Policy Institute  (CEPI) and demosEUROPA – Centre for European Strategy will take place on 10 December 2014 at 10:30 am at the premises of the Croatian National Bank.

The Report  will be presented in a panel discussion as a dialogue on future directions that Central European countries may take with a view to uphold their sustainable growth in the EU. This will be an opportunity to address issues such as economic recovery, competitiveness, innovation, education, capital markets as well as issues related to financing.
