Asia Program Events
Our Financial Institution Supervision and Credit (FISC) Division’s Country Analysis Unit (CAU) plays a key role in the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco’s focus on Asia and the Pacific Rim. CAU 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. Program events include conferences and seminars; engagement by FISC staff with the financial and regulatory community through presentations, speeches, and training; written analyses and briefings; and publication of Asia Focus. Annually, CAU prepares a summary of Asia Program activities and events (pdf, 260 kb) conducted throughout the year. For more information on these events, please contact Chris Sigur.
