About the Representative Offices

The BIS has two regional offices: the Representative Office for Asia and the Pacific in Hong Kong SAR and the Representative Office for the Americas in Mexico City.

Our Representative Offices serve as centres for BIS activities in their respective regions, strengthening relations and promoting cooperation between the BIS and regional central banks and supervisory authorities. To that end, the two offices foster the exchange of information and data, facilitate the organisation of meetings and seminars, and contribute to the Bank's financial and economic research on the Americas and Asia and the Pacific.

The offices also support BIS banking services in the Asia-Pacific region and the Americas. The Asian Office's regional treasury dealing room further enhances the level and scope of banking services to regional customers through its daily trading activities.
