We analyze the effects of euro area monetary policy on three Central and Eastern European non-euro area EU countries: the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary. We employ an open economy version of the factor-augmented vector autoregression model (FAVAR) to estimate the cross-border effects of a contractionary monetary policy of the ECB. We find significant and sizeable effects of euro area monetary policy in these small and highly open economies,
with economic activity variables being primarily affected through the impact of increased  interest rates and reduced foreign demand – thus leading to a contraction of GDP – and  exchange rate effects being important for price reactions.
