Asian Office research

Over the period 2014-15, research in the Asian Office will focus on two overarching themes, one related to financial stability and another related to monetary stability.

  • The financial stability topic is "Cross-border financial linkages in Asia and the Pacific". The work was presented at a conference in Wellington, New Zealand, in October 2014.
  • The monetary stability topic is "Expanding the boundaries of monetary policy". The work was presented at a conference in Jakarta, Indonesia, in August 2015.

Research projects are often undertaken in collaboration with central banks and supervisory authorities in Asia and the Pacific, including members of two Asian research networks, one for monetary policy and exchange rates and the other for financial markets and institutions.
