The crisis has forced countries to address structural unbalances in the EU periphery but also in Europe’s centre, east and south-east. The Conference on European Economic Integration was organised by the central banks of Finland and Austria in Helsinki on November 26 and 27, 2012. This highlighted the importance of sustainable economic policies and institutions promoting policies for achieving sustainable economic growth in these countries.
