July 12, 2017 - IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde was in Croatia to participate in the IMF National Bank conference on 'Reaccelerating Convergence in Central Eastern and Southeastern Europe: The Role of Governance and Institutions.' In her statement following the conference she spoke how "in many ways, the region is an incredible success story, having transformed successfully from centrally planned economies to market-based systems in less than a generation. But convergence with advanced Europe has slowed since the global financial crisis. Good governance and strong institutions can play a crucial role in speeding up the convergence process and making growth more durable and inclusive."
