About the Asia Program and Country Analysis Unit
The Financial Institution Supervision and Credit (FISC) Division’s Country Analysis Unit (CAU) manages the Asia Program, which focuses on issues important to banking in Asia and the Pacific Rim. Asia Program activities are designed to share information on issues and developments in Asian financial sectors with business and community leaders in the 12th Federal Reserve District and more broadly and support the Reserve Bank’s supervisory oversight of Asian foreign banking organizations operating in the U.S. To further its mission, the CAU team organizes Asia Program conferences, symposia, and forums to address current events that may impact banking and regulatory policies. The Unit also publishes Asia Focus, a periodical discussing a diverse range of topics pertaining to the Asian financial sector, and Pacific Exchange, a blog providing timely analysis of important banking and financial developments in the Asia Pacific. Annually, CAU prepares a summary of Asia Program activities and events (pdf, 225 kb) conducted throughout the year.
Please also see the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco’s Center for Pacific Basin Studies for additional research and programs to promote cooperation among central banks in the region and enhance public understanding of major Pacific Basin monetary and economic policy issues.
