Tue 9 Oct 2018
A collaboration between the Bank of Thailand and OMFIF, this meeting focuses on the reversal of unconventional monetary policies, structural transformation and the digital future.
A decade since the 2008 financial crisis, monetary policy in major advanced countries has shifted towards normalisation. After a period of ultra-low interest rates, which has fuelled a search for yield on a global scale, normalisation will be turbulent. Emerging markets have borne the brunt of the adjustment so far, but small and open economies are especially vulnerable.
Financial innovations such as distributed ledger technologies, algorithmic trading and internet-based peer-to-peer platforms are reshaping the financial landscape. While the opportunities are wide-ranging, the challenges for central banks are also substantial. Meeting these requires internal organisational change in terms of both functional divisions and staffing priorities.
