On 1 January 2023, Croatia became the 20th member of the euro area.
The introduction of the euro was preceded by a long process of convergence and Croatia's accession to the euro area comes in a time of economic challenges following the pandemic and due to the war in Ukraine. High inflation and high debt coupled with low growth prospects will challenge policy makers in the euro area and central bankers in the months to come. Against this background, the ECO section will organise a debate to discuss the prospects for Croatia and the euro area, also in view of future enlargements.
Against this background, the ECO section decided to organise a public debate on Wednesday, 1 February 2023 from 11:30 to 13:00.
The event will be webstreamed (original, EN, FR). No registration is needed and participation is free of charge.
