This Working Paper is a summary of the Workshop on "Macroeconomic Stabilization of Economies in Transition" held in Prague, Czech Republic on 22-24 April 1993. The workshop was organized by the Economic Transition and Integration Project of IIASA and the Institute for Economic Policy affiliated to the Ministry of Economy of the Czech Republic.

The purpose of the workshop was to assemble responsible policy makers, interested scholars from Central and Eastern European countries, as well as western experts to thoroughly discuss the accumulated experience with macroeconomic stabilization during economic reforms in Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech and Slovak Republics (the former CSFR as well), Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia, and the Ukraine. Those who presented papers and those who commented on them aimed at drawing attention to problems that are now explicit and pressing in countries which started with reforms sooner and are very likely to emerge in countries that started later. The organizers of the workshop firmly believed that the dissemination of experience from the more advanced reform countries could contribute to a better understanding of burdensome stabilization tasks and to a future improvement and refinement of stabilization policies and tools. Undoubtedly, a smoother and more successful transition will benefit not only the less advanced countries but to the region as a whole.

In retrospect we may now conclude that a good basis for a fruitful exchange of views and stimulating discussions was provided at the workshop.
