Abstract

One of the key goals of the economic policy makers of every country is to achieve internal and external balance. An unavoidable segment of the analysis concerning the achievement of internal and external balance is certainly the in?uence of the exchange rate regime applied in a country. European transition countries, despite their similar initial problems and fnal objectives, applied di?erent exchange rate regimes adapted to the economic circumstances and needs of the country. Te paper aims to examine and demonstrate the impact of the applied exchange rate regime on the internal balance of the transition countries. Te research encompasses 10 representative transition countries, in the period from 2000-2014. Te results of the research, from the aspect of internal balance, confrmed the justifcation of the application of the ?oating exchange rate regime in more developed, but not in less-developed, European transition countries. Te application of ?oating exchange rate regimes in less-developed transition countries is associated with a considerably higher average in?ation rate, which may be explained by the higher import dependence of lessdeveloped countries and by the consequent transfer of depreciation to price growth.
