Technical assistance

Foreword

Dear colleagues,

In 2002 the Czech National Bank organised its first seminar as part of technical cooperation amongst central banks. The past 16 years have proved that the exchange of knowledge and practical experience related to the process of transformation and integration into European structures is useful and interesting to colleagues from other central banks. Continued demand for seminars and attendance of a considerable number of colleagues from a wide range of institutions show that the activities of the Czech National Bank have become beneficial and valuable. Such interest in cooperation among central banks and the feedback we receive has inspired us to continue with the technical cooperation programme.

It is with great pleasure that I present you with a catalogue containing details of the seminars prepared by the Czech National Bank for 2019. The topics offered cover the issues most requested over the last few years. While some titles are similar to last year, the new catalogue offers new courses as well. 2019 will bring the opportunity to participate in the excellent workshop dedicated to macroeconomic modelling and forecasting, which opens every two years. Based on requests from other central banks, the popular seminar on human resources management will return in an updated version in 2019 after a two-year hiatus. On top of that, we are excited to introduce a brand new seminar titled “Coordinating policies in an integrated monetary and supervisory authority” in 2019. All seminars are prepared and led by the Czech National Bank’s experts who deal with the presented issues on a daily basis.

I am convinced that you will find the programme of seminars interesting and that the topics offered will match your expectations. In addition, the Czech National Bank is prepared to offer its know-how on specific topics and to welcome your experts for a visit on an individualised basis. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you should feel a need for any expertise we can provide.

We look forward to welcoming colleagues from other central banks at our events at the Czech National Bank in 2019.
