Professional lecture by the Vice-Governor of the Czech National Bank prof. Dr. Ing. Jan Frait at PRIGO University in Havířov

Leading Czech economist, member of the OECD economic policy committee and the current Vice-Governor of the Czech National Bank prof. Dr. Ing. Jan Frait will have a lecture on the topic “ Is the era of low global interest rates definitely behind us?“ The lecture will be held at PRIGO University on 17th March 2023.

We believe that the topic will interest both the academic community, i.e. students and teachers, as well as the general public who are interested in the current events in our economy and in the world.

The Czech Economic Society took over the auspices of the professional lecture.
