Hi,

The 2 days of talks are expected to focus on the state of the global economy a year into the economic crisis and on proposed restrictions on bankers' pay.

Could you tell me what the underlined part mean?

The world entered the crisis a year ago, and the crisis is still going on.

Here's a simpler example.

She is doing a 4 year degree. She is 3 years into it.

This means she will complete it in one more year.
