Webinar: Macro, Finance & Emerging Markets

A webinar series jointly hosted by
The Asia School of Business and The SEACEN Centre

The aim of this webinar series is to provide a continued outlet for policy-relevant work on topics in macroeconomics, finance and their nexus, and especially work relevant to the challenges confronting emerging economies. In a Covid-19 world, it is a way not only to bring back our research and policy seminars, but also to make that work more widely accessible. Join us for a conversation with Hyun Song Shin, Economic Adviser & Head of Research, Bank for International Settlements on the evolution of currency mismatches and implications for emerging market economies.
