I am working as a CERGE-EI Foundation Board Member for almost three years now and have experienced the outstanding committment of the people who manage CERGE as well as the excellence of its students as well as professors. CERGE is clearly commited to absolute quality in education as well as research in economics with the goal to bring top level educated and skilled economists back to their countries where they are needed to further improve the development of their countries. My experience is that this works very well and creates an international network of skilled experts in economics which is very much needed in a further intergrowing (economic) world to the benefit of all countries. CERGE-EI clearly has my fullest support

I am continually impressed by the vitality and promise of the diverse CERGE-EI student body and by CERGE's success in educating students from developing countries in modern economics. The doctoral program attracts the most promising students from a wide range of regions and educational backgrounds. Moreover, a huge percentage of CERGE-EI graduates remain in the region to serve in creating and implementing economic policy for developing countries that are often still emerging from the effects of communism. CERGE's program is extremely cost-effective and ranks among the best efforts at making possible a rational, productive future for this region and the world.

CERGE-EI started almost 20 years ago while I was directing The Andrew W. Mellon's East European program. From the very beginning it aimed at becoming the best modern graduate economics program in Eastern Europe, which it has succeeded at through the concerted efforts of donors, local faculty talent, imported faculty talent and outstanding student material. It is a highly rated program in the panoply of European efforts to teach advanced economics and I am pleased and proud to have been associated with it.

I have been connected with CERGE-EI for well over a decade and for much of that time as Treasurer and Chairman of the CERGE-EI Foundation. Every year I visit the institution in Prague and meet the students. Seeing these talented and committed young men and women investing hard in their education is an inspiration. They work to the highest of standards and they come from countries often desparately in need of well trained economists.
