Central Bank Digital Currency: Emerging Good Practices

IMF – Singapore Regional Training Institute 25th Anniversary Celebration Event

November 13, 2023


Many countries in the world are keenly interested in Central Bank Digital Currency (CDBC) developments, some have been researching and even launched pilots, and a few have already started to issue CDBCs. Based on the experiences so far, the IMF will be launching a virtual CBDC Handbook that provides information about emerging good practices that might be useful for policymakers, academics, and the informed public alike. As part of STI’s 25th anniversary celebration, this event will provide an overview of key insights and discuss next steps. The event is hybrid and open to the public and media.
