FOR FINANCIAL YEAR 2016
JANUARY – DECEMBER 2016
In 2016, six research programs are proposed. These consist of four collaborative projects and two ‘Just-in-time’ high level seminars.
The proposed research projects are as follows:
a. Managing and Supervising Systemically Important Financial Institutions (SIFIs) in SEACEN Economies;
b. Global Liquidity and the Impact of Capital Flows on Exchange Rate in SEACEN Economies;
c. Inflation Dynamics in the SEACEN Economies; and
d. Monetary Transmission in the SEACEN Economies.
All the research projects are carried out with the collaboration of researchers from member banks. Research projects (a) and (b) are proposed based on information gathered for the Meeting of Directors of Supervision and Payment Systems and the Meeting of SEACEN Directors of Research and Training.
Topics (c) and (d) will be the results of the survey responses received from the member banks’ research departments.
High-Level Research Seminars
Two “Just-in-time” seminars on topics which will be decided nearer to the date of implementation to ensure timeliness of the seminar topics.
High- Level Seminars (back-to-back with Policy Meetings)
For FY2016, SEACEN proposes to implement six high-level seminars/conference/learning/research programs which will be held back-to-back with high-level meetings.
The themes of the respective seminars will be topical and policy oriented in nature, aiming to derive potential regional views.
