by Susan Schadler Paulo Drummond Louis Kuijs Zuzana Murgasova Rachel Van Elkan

This paper examines likely economic developments and policy challenges for the five former transition countries in central Europe (the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, the Slovak Republic and Slovenia) which joined the EU in May 2004. These economies operate independent monetary policies but have not yet achieved policy convergence with the rest of the euro area.

Euro Adoption in Central and Eastern Europe

by Susan Schadler

The Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovak Republic, and Slovenia all joined the European Union in 2004. The next major step of European integration for these countries is adoption of the Euro. This volume presents 10 papers by country officials, academics, representatives of international institutions, and market participants examining different issues arising from the adoption of the Euro in the eight new EU members. Papers explore the preconditions for successful Euro adoption, the role of monetary independence, real convergence and Euro adoption, and strategies for adoption. Each paper is accompanied by a commentary. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
