Central Banking Award

As a monetary policy expert working at the IMF when the Soviet Union dissolved I had the exciting and fulfilling opportunity of leading technical assistance missions to the central banks of Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova and Slovakia and building on those experiences to a number of post conflict country central banks (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, and South Sudan). I am grateful to the IMF and the wonderful colleagues I worked with for these opportunities and now I am grateful to the Central Banking Journal for acknowledging this work with its “Outstanding Contribution for Capacity Building Award.”  I will received the award in London March 13.   Award announcement
