19th BIS Annual Conference and Per Jacobsson Lecture

Virtual events hosted by the BIS from 30 October to 16 December 2020

The BIS Working Papers that served as the basis for webinar topics during the 19th BIS Annual Conference are now available. Paper titles and their links have been added below under the respective speaker.

As it celebrated its 90th anniversary, the BIS turned the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic into an opportunity. For the first time, the general public was invited to virtually attend the high-level academic events that normally take place at the time of the BIS Annual General Meeting. We livestreamed five virtual presentations on the overarching topic of "Central banking in the wake of the pandemic", including the Per Jacobsson Lecture, a joint IMF-BIS event that was held on 30 October 2020.
