Resilient, well-regulated financial systems are essential for macroeconomic and financial stability in a world of increased capital flows. The Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP), a joint IMF and World Bank effort, aims to promote the soundness of financial systems around the world. Supported by experts from a range of national agencies and standard-setting bodies, these assessments seek to identify the strengths and vulnerabilities of a country's financial system; determine how key sources of risk are being managed; ascertain the sector's developmental needs; and help develop policy responses and prioritize technical assistance needs. The following panelists will explore how effective such efforts have been and how they can be further enhanced:
