2011 Asia Economic Policy Conference: Asia’s Role in the Post-Crisis Global Economy

November 29 - November 30, 2011

Policymakers in both advanced and emerging economies face an array of challenges in the current economic environment. How can monetary policy and macroprudential policy be coordinated to achieve the objectives of price and output stability in an environment vulnerable to disruptions in financial markets? What financial regulatory framework will best reduce the likelihood and costs of future crises? What are the relative merits of regional coordination in Asia in light of the lessons of the recent crisis? What are the prospects for global rebalancing of trade and capital flows, and what role might China play in these developments? The 2011 conference examined these issues.
