IMFS Asia Workshop
Topic: Economic Reforms in Europe and Asia: Similarities and Differences
Over the past many countries in Europe and Asia were plagued by persistently weak eco-nomic growth and its consequences for employment. Other countries experienced large external and sectoral imbalances which were deemed as non sustainable. Furthermore, in-itiatives to reform the financial sector and enhance its crisis resilience are still on the agenda. The conference aims to discuss these challenges, to compare the experiences in different regions and discuss reforms needed to overcome the problems.
