The Transition Report is a unique source of information on developments in central and eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Drawing on the EBRD's extensive experience as an investor in the region, the Report offers comprehensive analysis of the transition to market economies and macroeconomic performance. Country-by-country assessments comprise macroeconomic tables, including output and expenditure and foreign direct investment. They also provide key data on liberalization, stabilization, privatization, enterprise reform, infrastructure, financial institutions and social reform.
