International Conference on Economy of Armenia
Call For Papers

Despite the success of the 1994 macroeconomic stabilization program
and introduction of a broad spectrum of structural measures, which led
the way to sustained growth, the Armenian economy continues to face
formidable challenges. Per capita income is very low by international
standards; rates of unemployment and emigration are high; financial
system remains rudimental; domestic savings and foreign investment are
inadequate to maintain ailing infrastructure and provide basis for
solid long-term growth.

Given the complex nature of these problems, it remains to be seen
whether the economy will experience faster and broader-based growth,
by capitalizing on the nation's skilled labor force, and human,
intellectual, and financial potential of Armenian Diaspora. To address
these issues and discuss policy options, the Armenian International
Policy Research Group will host an international conference on:

Armenia: Recent Economic Trends and Growth Prospects

The conference will be held on Saturday, January 25, 2003 in the World
Bank headquarters in Washington, DC. While papers from all areas of
relevance for growth and development are welcome, preference will be
given to the following broad topics:

Macroeconomic Policies
Financial Sector Policies
Governance and Public Sector Reforms
Diaspora's Role and Channels of Involvement
Human Capital and Emigration
FDI and Industrial Policies
Trade and Regional Cooperation

Prospective authors should submit papers and/or abstracts by December
1, 2002 to <[email protected]>. Authors of
accepted papers will be notified by the Selection Committee by
December 15, 2002. The Selection Committee of the conference will be
chaired by:

David Joulfaian, US Department of Treasury
Lev Freinkman, The World Bank
Ann-Margret Westin, International Monetary Fund

All participants, including authors, may register on-line by visiting
The final agenda along with the list of confirmed papers will be
circulated by January 1, 2003. The official language of the conference
is English.
