 We have reached the end of the 13th edition of the Regional Seminar on Financial Stability and it is my pleasure to provide some closing remarks.

 After two days of interesting presentations and intense debates, I will try to summarize some of the ideas presented here.

 In this year's edition of the Financial Stability Seminar, whose topics was "Inclusion and Financial Stability", we have discussed about:

o Financial inclusion and income inequality

o Correlation between macroprudential policy and financial inclusion

o Access to banking financing

o Climate-related risks

All these were discussed in the context of financial stability.

 Some of the subjects, like macroprudential policy and its effects, were discussed in-depth these days, but also in the previous editions of the seminar. And that's how it should be. This policy represents a key element in ensuring financial stability.
