 Caucasus and Central Asia: Economic Outlook and Policy Challenges

The growth momentum in the Caucasus and Central Asia (CCA) is expected to stabilize in 2018 and the medium term. Still, it will take almost two decades to raise CCA living standards to the current levels of their peers. What does it take for countries in the region to move to a private-sector-led growth model? How can they build buffers, address weaknesses in the financial sector, and tackle high public debt? And how can growth be made more inclusive—so that it benefits all through job creation, higher incomes, and more opportunities?

Speaker: Juha Kähkönen, Deputy Director, Middle East and Central Asia Department, IMF

Moderator: S. Frederick Starr, Chairman, Central Asia-Caucasus Institute at the American Foreign Policy Council

 

Where: American Foreign Policy Council: 509 C Street NE, Washington, DC 20002

When: Friday, December 14, 2018 from 12:30 - 2:00 pm,
