IMF sees bright economic spots in New Europe

The IMF has just published its Regional Economic Outlook for Europe. It emphasizes the resilience of New Europe (EU-10) and its strengthening economic recovery. It summarizes the message in a text on the blog.

I could not agree more - this is what I have been saying all along (see my recent CEPA paper), ie that the global crisis has hardly weakened the sound long-term growth fundamentals of New Europe and that it will continue fast convergence with Western Europe, heralding the arrival of New Europe's Golden Age.
