An event that is “recent” is something that happened only a short while ago. However, even though we say a “short while ago” we often say “recent years”. A year is not really a short while ago, but it is still common to say “recent years”. For example, “Sales have fallen by 50% in recent years.” Or “I haven’t caught up with my old friends in recent years.”
“Recent” is often used in formal situations, for example, in the news, “a recent attack” or in the scientific world, “in a recent study”, or education, “this is the most recent edition of the book.”
