「G20 Seoul Conference」
 

The Conference will provide a valuable occasion to recall G20’s achievements and discuss its prospects and visions, to examine how to improve G20 discussions around recent monetary policies of advanced economies, their impact on emerging markets and the range of possible policy responses. It will also provide the opportunity to examine the role of the global safety net, including Regional Financial Arrangements (RFAs).

Speakers and discussants will include government officials and central bankers of the
G20 and other countries, staff of international organizations and researchers with
extensive knowledge and experiences on this area.

Following the 2008 global financial crisis, decisive actions of central banks across advanced economies significantly reduced tail risks and supported the global recovery. However, they also had significant spillover effects. We have recently seen an increase in the volatility of capital flows due to expectations of eventual monetary policy recalibration in advanced economies. At this juncture, the Conference would be a timely endeavor to analyze the evidence base for measuring and monitoring this major challenge in the global economy and explore possible policy responses.

It is also appropriate to have a pragmatic and detailed discussion on the global safety net, including the role of RFAs, and how well safety nets have operated. Further, as you might recall, at the last G20 Summit in St Petersburg our Leaders asked Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors to follow the developments and progress in the IMF-RFA cooperation, as well as the dialogue among RFAs. The Conference will be part of an effort to fulfill these commitments. In particular, it will explore ways to enable the sharing of RFA experiences and practices and to facilitate cooperation with the IMF.

We hope that sharing knowledge and experiences during the Conference will result in a more constructive discussion on key G20 issues.
