Letter of Invitation

We cordially invite you to the G20 Global Financial Stability Conference 2022 scheduled to be held at The Plaza Seoul hotel on Wednesday, September 21, co-hosted by the Ministry of Economy and Finance and Korea Development Institute. This conference, held in conjunction with the upcoming G20 International Financial Architecture Working Group meeting, will address three main themes: (1) The Global Economic Outlook and the Acceleration of Tightening Monetary Policy, (2) The Role of the Global Financial Safety Net, and (3) The Future of International Financial Architecture.

The conference will examine the impact of the acceleration of tightening monetary policy and geopolitical risks on indebted low-income countries as well as spillovers in international financial markets. It will also explore ways to enhance the governance and efficiency of international financial institutions to strengthen the Global Financial Safety Net.

Furthermore, this conference will analyze the future impact of the growing use of digital assets on financial stability and the resulting shifts in the financial markets. Invaluable insights are to be shared on how the G20 can demonstrate leadership in the context of international financial architecture in tackling global economic challenges including climate change.

We are confident that this conference will serve as a fruitful platform where scholars and G20 policymakers throughout the globe can join together and pool their wisdom to diagnose potential global economic risks and devise countermeasures.
We look forward to welcoming each and every one of you.

Letter of Invitation

We cordially invite you to the G20 Global Financial Stability Conference 2021, co-hosted by the Ministry of Economy and Finance and Korea Development Institute (KDI) and scheduled to take place on September 7, Tuesday. Considering the recent COVID-19 situation, the conference will be held in a hybrid form (online + on-site).

This conference will cover three main themes : 1) The Global Financial Stability Risks and Policy Coordination in the Pandemic Era, 2) The Digital Currency and their Macro-Financial Implications, and 3) Post-Pandemic International Financial Market and System.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact not only on the real economy such as the global supply chain and consumer behavior patterns, but also on domestic and global financial economy as seen from the increasing instability of global capital flows. In addition, the uneven global economic recovery followed by potential monetary policy normalization in some countries can pose a major threat to the global economy. Furthermore, the emergence of digital currency in line with the acceleration of “Economic Digitization” poses a new challenge for all of us.

This conference will enable various scholars and professionals from home and abroad to examine in-depth policy objects together and discuss strategies to ensure global financial stability and solid economic growth, while preparing for the post-pandemic future of the international financial market and system.

We ask for your strong interest and active participation in this event.

Greetings
 
Since its inception in 2013, the Global Financial Stability Conference has been an international forum for leading financial experts at home and abroad to examine risk factors and consider countermeasures for the global financial system.
 
We’ve reflected on the challenges and achievements during the two crises, the Asian Currency Crisis and the Global Financial Crisis. And we’ve been discussing preemptive measures against newly emerging risk factors that can pose a serious threat to financial stability, from cross-border capital flows to the digital economy.
 
Recently, uncertainties in the global financial market are further growing due to increasing volatility in capital flows, escalating trade tensions and rising geopolitical risks. In particular, trade conflicts and resulting disruptions in the global value chains are identified as the biggest risk factors to potential growth and financial stability of the global economy.
 
As financial crises strike us when problems combine in unpredictable and unforeseen ways, it will be meaningful for us to proactively examine and analyze the impact of various risk factors on global financial stability and discuss appropriate countermeasures.
 
The G20 Global Financial Stability Conference 2019, joined by policy makers at home and abroad, experts from academia and international organizations will discuss challenges to global financial stability and pool our wisdom on the role of the G20 and policy coordination for global financial stability.
 
We cordially invite you to share your insights with us at the Conference.

Letter of Invitation

A decade ago, the world economy faced a financial crisis, considered as the worst since the Great Depression. To overcome the crisis, major countries have employed unprecedented expansionary macroeconomic policies, and have promoted international policy coordination, centered around the G20. Thanks to the efforts, the global economy has bounced back.

However, the uncertainties stemming from normalization of monetary policy and spreading protectionsim are perceived as risk factors in the global market. Also, the advent of digital economy including crypto-assets is likely to pose challenges to financial systems. It is therefore meaningful to identify potential risk factors and proactive countermeasures to global financial stability.

The G20 Global Financial Stability Conference 2018, joined by policymakers and experts from academia and international organizations, will reflect on the roles and achievements of the G20 is overcoming the crisis as well as cross-border capital flows and financial safety nets since then. Moreover, the impact of digital economy on financial stability and considerations for policy coordination will be discussed.

We cordially invite you to share your insights with us.

Letter of Invitation
 
Twenty years have passed since the Asian Financial Crisis of 1997. The Korean economy at the time had experienced unprecedented difficulties, triggered by the sudden outflow of capital and the depletion of foreign exchange reserves. With the concerted efforts of Korean people, however, Korea managed to overcome the crisis, achieving a sound external position and reinforcing its capacities to manage systemic risks.
 
Recently the world economy is showing signs of recovery. However, there are a number of risk factors including the normalization of monetary policy in advanced economies, uncertainties around trade protectionism, and a slowdown of productivity growth. To prevent such risks from precipitating another crisis, pre-emptive measures and cross-border policy coordination are necessary and such efforts shall begin by reviewing the lessons from the past.
 
The Global Financial Stability Conference 2017: The Asian Crisis 20 Years Later will provide a meaningful opportunity to revisit the policy environments and responses of Asian countries twenty years ago and to have in-depth discussions on the global financial system and safety net with policymakers and international finance experts from academia and international organizations. We cordially invite you to the Conference in Seoul, and sincerely hope you will join us.

Greetings

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Global Financial Stability Conference 2016, jointly organized by the Ministry of Strategy and Finance of Republic of Korea and Korea Development Institute, held on July 26th at The Westin Chosun Seoul, Korea.
 
The macroeconomic implications of the UK’s Brexit referendum last month were yet another reminder of the increased interconnectivity of the global economy. Many of us have learned over the years that any one political, economic, or social uncertainty, seemingly confined to an individual country, could trigger global financial instability such as rapid capital flows or severe exchange rate fluctuations.
 
In order to safeguard the financial stability of the world economy amidst uncertainties and potential risks, it is essential to build a seamless global financial safety net based on cross-border coordination of macroeconomic policies. In particular, there is an increasing need for comprehensive and in-depth analyses on newly emerging instruments such as regional financial arrangements and capital flow management, in addition to traditional measures such as foreign exchange reserves, currency swaps, and IMF loans. In this context, the upcoming conference will offer a meaningful occasion for policy makers and experts from governments, international organizations, and academia to share research findings and experiences on international capital flows, the global financial safety net and the international monetary system.
 
Once again, we sincerely hope you will join us in Seoul for a meaningful discussion on strengthening the global financial safety net. Thank you for your interest and support.
