Taking stock of the progress achieved by the ten Central and Eastern European countries which entered the EU in 2004 and 2007, this report looks at their economies in terms of their real and nominal economic convergence. It analyses the period from 2004 to 2014 to offer a longer-term perspective on convergence, while providing also a horizontal, cross-country comparison of convergence.
