SECOND SEACEN-CEMLA CONFERENCE
Punta del Este, Uruguay
15-16 November 2012

The environment in which central banks operate has changed dramatically in recent years with increased globalization of financial markets. The impact of increasingly integrated financial markets has been felt on the volatility of net capital flows, foreign direct investments, portfolio investments, and volatility of exchange rates. The increased uncertainty, instability of the global financial environment and complexity of financial transactions have influenced the way in which central banks perform their roles in safeguarding macroeconomic and financial stability.

It was with these concerns in mind that the Second SEACEN-CEMLA Conference was organized in Punta del Este, Uruguay, on 15-16 November 2012. Hosted by the Banco Central Del Uruguay, the timely theme of the Conference was on “Cross-regional collaboration among central banks in the Asian and Latin American regions through various strategic initiatives".

The keynote speakers included Mr. Armando M. Tetangco, Governor, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas; Dr. Hans Timmer, Director, Development Prospects Group, The World Bank and Dr. José Luis Escrivá, Chief Representative for the Americas, Bank for International Settlements.

The SEACEN Centre was represented by its Executive Director, Mr. Hookyu Rhu, who gave a presentation on “Scope for Central Banking Cooperation: New- Age Era for Policy Coordination” and Mr. Michael Zamorski, Adviser, who spoke on “Post-Crisis Strategies to Enhance Prudential Supervision and Regulation to Promote Financial Stability”.

Other speakers included the following: Dr. Boris Vujčić, Governor, Croatian National Bank; Dr. Michael Dooley, University of California, Santa Cruz; Dr. Subir Lall, Assistant Director, European Department, International Monetary Fund; Dr. Eduardo Fernández-Arias, Inter-American Development Bank; Dr. Gillmore Hoefdraad, President, Centrale Bank van Suriname; Dr. Julio Velarde, Governor, Banco Central de Reserva del Perú; Dr. Alexander Tombini, Governor, Banco Central do Brasil; Dr. P.
