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.

The Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovak Republic, and Slovenia all joined the European Union in 2004.

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)
