UNU-CRIS, GRESI-FWO, and the IES will organize an expert workshop on “Indicator-Based Monitoring of Regional Economic Integration” in Brussels on 25-26 October 2012.
This workshop will allow experts from different world regions to meet and present their experiences in building indicator systems for monitoring the implementation of regional economic integration policies such as preferential trade areas, common markets or economic and monetary unions. Participants will exchange views on both technical and governance aspects of such systems, and discuss best practices. Representatives from the World Bank, UNECA, Asian Development Bank and the European Commission have confirmed their participation.
A number of regional experiences will be covered, including the European Union, Eurasia/Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), ASEAN, East African Community, ACP, the Americas, etc.
