Mitigating Risks in the International Financial System: National Regional, Global Responses

Washington D.C., USA

September 9, 2010



In 2010, regional financial safety nets were considered as playing a useful role in helping national authorities deal with volatility of capital flows. Nonetheless, at the time of this conference the recent crisis experience, which severely hit many countries at once on a global scale, suggested the value of a multi-layered financial safety net where national and regional solutions could be complemented by multilateral support from the IMF or other such sources. At this conference, representatives of regional financing arrangements (RFAs) , market participants and academics were invited to suggest possible modalities for coordinating the efforts of national and regional authorities with those of the  IMF in its role as a crisis prevention and resolution agent.
