Conference Objectives!

Achieving global financial stability and sustained economic growth are the most important challenges being faced by the current global community. In this context, avoiding ‘systemic risks’ is yet another important task before all of us in the present volatile global economic landscape. However, achieving these objectives is fraught with many challenges. According to a recent report published by the International Monetary Fund (IMF, April 2014), the U.S should ensure a more stable and sound monetary policy that help avoid financial stability-related risks.  Eurozone should ensure more integration and stability across her member nations. Coming to emerging markets, a vital instability worrying factor is the high level of leverage in the balance sheets of the corporate sector.  A few of the emerging economies have witnessed increased participation of foreign investors in domestic bond markets. These phenomena have, quite obviously, contributed to ‘market volatility’ and pressure on capital flows. All these developments have resulted in ‘liquidity mismatch’, a mismatch between contractual amounts and maturity dates for inflows and outflows exerting pressure on the banking sector. Yet another factor to be considered here is that massive capital outflows result in volatility in asset prices directly affecting the banking and financial markets considered to be the vulnerable segments of an economy.

Against this backdrop, the conference would make an attempt to answer, among others, the following questions:

What are the root-causes of the major issues affecting the global financial stability and the ways and means to fix them?
What are the feasible solutions to resolve the fragility in the Euro Zone economies and put them on to the path of recovery and growth?
How to reduce the volatility in asset prices so that vulnerable segments of the economy do not get affected?
How to avert yet another ‘systemic crisis’ in the future?
What is the role of banking, financial and other institutions in ensuring sustained economic growth in the post- crisis scenario?
How to deleverage the banking and corporate sector to an optimum level of debt-equity so that the world does not witness systemic problems here afterwards?
Apart from making a bonafide attempt to answer the above questions, the conference would endeavor to suggest ways and means to ensure sustained economic growth for the global world.
