27/06/2008 : Conference "The Economic Aspects of the Energy Sector in CIS Countries", Moscow, 27 June 2008

On June 27 2008, a high level Conference was held at the premises of the EU Delegation in Moscow, Russia. That conference was the culmination of the "road tour" to disseminate the ECFIN Economic Paper n. 327.

This comprehensive study, coordinated by Lúcio Vinhas de Souza at the Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs (DG-ECFIN) of the European Commission, focuses on the macroeconomic aspects of the energy sector in the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and on some of the challenges for fiscal, monetary and exchange rate policies arising from their reliance on the energy sector, including fiscal rules, resource curse, Dutch disease and quasi-fiscal activities. The study also covers selected aspects of the EU-CIS energy relations, looking at the potential of the CIS region as a source of energy supplies for the EU and also at current trends and reform options of the energy sector in the CIS countries.

The full study, with Executive Summaries in Russian and English, has been published as the Economic Paper no 327 of June 2008.
