During the conference, Hans Timmer, Chief Economist of the World Bank’s Europe and Central Asia region, will give a presentation on migration and mobility – two factors that play a vital role in the economic, political, and social dynamics of the countries in this region.
Over the years, the region has seen changes in the drivers, nature, and intensity of migration, a broad phenomenon that has had an integral impact on the societies in the region.
