Conference Objectives!

Why does Financial Crisis Happen?

The International Monetary Fund (IMF), in one of its research papers, has observed that countries that suffered from economic crisis, have failed to take note of the red flags coming from several quarters. Among the important contributing factors, the research report states that these economies, have not taken note of building ‘systemic risks’ owing to the growing asset price bubbles. In addition, these economies had institutions that suffered from higher level of debts. Banks and financial institutions, on their part, made predatory lending to vulnerable sections of the society and suffered from poor supervisory and regulatory mechanism.

The European Central Bank website defines financial stability as:

… a condition in which the financial system—comprising of financial intermediaries, markets and market infrastructures—is capable of withstanding shocks, thereby, reducing the likelihood of disruptions in the financial intermediation process which are severe enough to significantly impair the allocation of savings to profitable investment opportunities. (ECB 2012)

Further, the ECB defines three conditions associated with financial stability:

(i) The financial system should be able to efficiently and smoothly transfer resources from savers to investors.

(ii) Financial risks should be assessed and priced reasonably accurately and should also be relatively well managed.

(iii) The financial system should be in such a condition that it can comfortably absorb financial and real economic surprises and shocks.

(ECB 2012)

Monetary and Financial Stability in Asia!

After the 2008-09 global financial crisis, the global markets witness the emergence and increased presence of Asian Banks in the global financial markets. Asia, one of the most important and integral part of the global financial system, can make tangible contribution to the global economy by increasing its presence through bank lending, market participation and other important channels. Undoubtedly, credit from Asian banks, can help strengthen the industry, particularly, the SMEs and other manufacturing sectors. Asia, the most populated continent in the world should take all possible efforts to ensure that every Asian country ensures adequate economic growth with greater employment opportunities and stability.

Against this backdrop, the upcoming conference in Chennai-India, makes an attempt to achieve the following objectives;

a) Identify and analyze the major contributing factors that affect the financial stability of a nation;

b) Appreciate the tangible steps that Asian economies have to initiate in order to ensure a strong and orderly financial system in Asia in particular, and in international monetary system in general;

c) Provide an ideal platform for researchers, economists, bankers and practitioners to share their research findings and practical experiences on the topic with the global audience;

d) Suggest suitable measures that would ensure long-term stability orderly functioning of the banking and financial institutions in Asia in order to avert any future shocks and systemic risks.
