IMF’s Role in Emerging Markets: Reassessing the Adequacy of its resources and Lending Facilities

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

November 18-19, 2004



Hosted in Amsterdam, as part of RBWC’s International Monetary Convention Project conducted in collaboration with the World Economic Forum, this seminar provided an interesting and lively discussion on emerging market crises, with particular reference to the risks of contagion, the role of public/private financial flows, the adequacy of IMF resources, and the extent to which various “architectural” innovations (e.g., CACs, codes of conduct) may have played an important role in mitigating the risks of future financial meltdowns in vulnerable economies.
