The Czech Republic celebrates 100 years

26 October, 2018

On Sunday, 28 October, we celebrate 100 years since the founding of the Czechoslovak Republic. This anniversary is a great opportunity to find out more about the rich history of our country.
Professor Jan Švejnar, co-founder of CERGE-EI, will speak about the development of the Czech economy in his public lecture entitled Transformation of the Czech Economy and Society.
This lecture is part of the Week of Science and Technology festival organized by the Czech Academy of Sciences.

Thanks to the diplomatic effort of Tomas Garrigue Masaryk and his coworkers, the establishment of Czechoslovakia in 1918 was also supported by the United States of America.
Therefore, 2018 is also a year when we celebrate the formal beginning of US-Czech diplomatic relations. To mark one hundred years of the Czech-American friendship, the US Ambassador to the Czech Republic Stephen King will give a speech at CERGE-EI on 20 November.
