Approximately a decade ago, the Global Financial Crisis (“GFC”) shook the foundations of the banking sector and threatened Financial stability globally, albeit it was centered in the western economies. Asia’s turn took place more than 20 years ago, during the Asian Financial Crisis. Governments, authorities and the banking sector have evolved significantly since then, establishing safeguards to protect the system when another crisis hits.

We are now faced with a new storm. How does this COVID-19 crisis impact the banking sector differently compared to past crises and what can we learn from recent history? Safeguards will now be put to the test – will they be enough or will more need to be done? As we navigate through these challenging times, the South East Asian Central Banks (SEACEN) Research and Training Centre and the Malaysia Deposit Insurance Corporation (PIDM), have organized a high profile Asia focused webinar which brings together various experts in the field who will share their experience from previous crises and thoughts on practical actions for banking system stakeholders in this crisis.

Distinguished guest speakers include Mr. Andrew Gracie, the former Resolution Director for the Bank of England, Ms. Yvonne Chia, the Chairman of Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia, who will be joined by Dr. Lana Soelistianingsih, CEO of the Indonesia Deposit Insurance Corporation (LPS), Dr. Cyn-Young Park, Director at the Asia Development Bank (ADB), Mr. Rafiz Azuan Abdullah, CEO of PIDM, Dr. Mangal Goswami, Executive Director of The SEACEN Centre, Mr. Tim Pagett, APAC Financial Services Industry (FSI) Leader of Deloitte and Mr. Chi-Nang Kong, Asia Head of Global Portfolio Lead Advisory Services (PLAS) at Deloitte.
