“Fiscal area seems to represent the key challenge”, said CBCG.

Muller said that key global challenges are political stability, economic development and climate changes.

“In order to successfully respond to these challenges, we need to adjust fiscal spendings, make reforms of financial system and provide price stability and flexibility of monetary courses. We need to improve infrastructure, education and economy”, he thinks.
