Strategic Partners


The SEACEN Centre currently collaborates with 26 strategic partners in the areas of macroeconomic management and monetary policy; financial stability and banking supervision and regulation; payment and settlement system; as well as central bank governance, leadership and support services. The Centre is continually engaged in the development of high quality training programmes for members in collaboration with its strategic partners. The partnership with the strategic partners provides SEACEN participants with exposure to international best practices in central banking knowledge in a cost effective manner. In addition to expert knowledge, some of the collaborators provide financial resources. The collaborators, on the other hand, benefit immensely from the access to network with 19 member central banks/monetary authorities; 16 "Observers and Invitees" central banks/monetary authorities as well as an ever expanding list of strategic partners.

The Centre will continue with its search for collaborators in efforts to improve the quality of its learning and research programmes. In addition, The SEACEN Centre will identify subject matter experts from the financial community such as research centres, private banks, rating agencies, investment houses, accounting fraternity and members of the academia to provide the participants with broader perspectives and experiences.
