Economic Integration and Interdependence in Central and Eastern Europe

The volume reviews the processes and results of economic integration as well as patterns of interdependence in case of seven Central and Eastern European countries between 1989 and 2016. It presents country-specific experiences resulted from economic integration and interdependence. Based on these experiences, this comparative volume tries to identify the similarities and differences in paths followed by these countries and their impact on economic convergence. 13% of Europe’s population live in these seven countries and this group contributes with 7.8% to the nominal GDP produced a year in Europe. All country-specific reports of the volume analyse the economic transformation process of the examined countries focusing on integration and interdependence in relation to other European countries. The reports that are based on literature review and the analysis of statistical data, expound the main macroeconomic indicators and trends of the countries in order to provide a comprehensive picture.

The work was created in commission of the National University of Public Service under the priority project entitled “Public Service Development Establishing Good Governance”
