The SEACEN Centre held the Conference on “Central Bank Mandates and Cooperation” to commemorate the centenary of Dr. Puey Ungphakorn, former Governor of the Bank of
Thailand. Dr. Puey made important contributions to economic development of Thailand and to strengthening its system of higher education. Dr. Puey was the Governor of the (Central)
Bank of Thailand (BOT) for 12 years, a Dean of the Faculty of Economics, and also a rector of Thammasat University. Strong principles, integrity and patriotism, characteristic of Dr. Puey, greatly influenced his contributions to Thailand’s progress in establishing a solid foundation for sustainable growth. During his tenure as the Governor, Dr. Puey also played a crucial role in promoting financial stability and was a strong advocate of central bank cooperation in the region, leading to the creation of The SEACEN Centre.
The primary thematic focus of the Conference, attended by 400 delegates, was on central bank cooperation in the current context of increased financial market
integration, and on the desirability of expanded mandates for central banks.
