Inflation in Armenia? | Lecture by IMF Representative

Readers here may not be aware that actually our Armenian CRRC also runs its own blog, to announce and describe CRRC’s events. One of the most recent events was a lecture by the IMF Resident Representative in Armenia, Dr. Nienke Oomes.

Dr. Oomes discussed what is happening to prices in Armenia, and offered a very comprehensive analysis. For a quick overview over the event, click here. Her PowerPoint presentation, which sets out her argument in good detail and includes four recommendations (more effective inflation targeting, facilitating reduction of import prices, tightening fiscal policy, and increasing the public’s knowledge of inflation targeting), is available.
