About Us



The South East Asian Central Banks (SEACEN) Research and Training Centre (80416-M) was first established as a legal entity in 1982 with eight member central banks/monetary authorities which has since grown to nineteen members.

Since its inception in the early 1980’s, The SEACEN Centre has established its unique regional position in serving its membership of central banks in the Asia-Pacific region through its learning programmes, research work, and networking and collaboration platforms for capability building in central banking knowledge.

Over the years, SEACEN has built a wide network base, in that besides its members, the Centre has an outreach of 15 other central banks and monetary authorities which are invited for the Centre’s learning programmes, as well as 26 regional and international strategic partners with whom the Centre collaborates in the design and delivery of its programmes in central banking knowledge areas (Macroeconomic and Monetary Policy Management; Financial Stability and Supervision; and Payment and Settlement Systems and Leadership and Governance).
