The Road to the European Union: Macroeconomic Policy Challenges for Hungary and Poland. Fulbright-Hayes Summer Seminars Abroad Program, 2002 (Hungary and Poland).
Ramirez, Teresita R.
Prospects for the enlargement of the European Union (EU) became imminent when the EU Commission agreed in 1997 to open formal negotiations with five of the Central and Eastern European countries: (1) the Czech Republic; (2) Hungary; (3) Poland; (4) Slovenia; and (5) Estonia. This research project discusses macroeconomic policy challenges that Hungary and Poland face as they work toward membership in the European Union. The project examines the macroeconomic policies that these two countries have implemented in recent years, as well as those that they are currently pursuing to meet the necessary targets and objectives. The project contains four parts: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Hungary's Road to the EU" (recent economic trends; monetary policy management; fiscal policy management; macroeconomic policy challenges for the near term); (3) "Poland's Road to the EU" (recent economic trends; monetary policy management; fiscal policy management; macroeconomic policy challenges for the near term); and (4) "Conclusion." (Contains 13 references.) (BT)
