International Conference on Policy Challenges for the Financial Sector 2023

May 31-June 02, 2023
Washington D.C.


Financial sector regulators and supervisors are currently beset by twin challenges—responding to an uncertain economic outlook with greater risk of financial instability and maintaining focus on longer-term priorities.  As the world moved past Covid challenges, a series of shocks have led to high geopolitical tension, global economic uncertainty, inflation, and financial and commodity market volatilities. Economic prospects of emerging markets and developing economies have been adversely impacted, not only by these shocks, but also by the policy tightening response in advanced economies, which has resulted in high external borrowing costs. These conjunctural challenges, combined with structural changes that will have a lasting impact on the global financial system, will be shaping supervisory work programs in the months and years ahead.
