The Future of Asia's Finance
IMF-HKMA Joint Conference:
Helping Asia Invest, Integrate and Innovate, While Remaining Resilient
Location: Hong Kong Monetary Authority
February 28, 2014
Asia's emerging and industrial economies generally have large and sophisticated financial sectors. But sustaining Asia's impressive growth will require Asia's financial sectors to innovate further, while becoming more interconnected and efficient in financial intermediation and risk management. Through this, Asia's financial sectors will help Asia invest, integrate and include better. New and creative approaches will be required to ensure continued resilience to global and domestic shocks, while rising to the challenge of demographic change in Asia. Finally, as Asian economies and financial systems grow, it will be important to ensure that this process is consistent with financial stability and economic sustainability.
This conference will draw together Asia's top policymakers, academics, and financiers to take stock of recent developments within Asia's financial systems, assess the main challenges that lie ahead, and identify key policy areas to address these challenges.
