New Trends in reserve Management and its Meaning for the International Financial System

Shnghai, China

November 1-2, 2007



At the time of this conference new trends in reserve management had been emerging in response to novel challenges and technologies. This conference focused on these trends and their meaning for the international financial system. When talking about these issues, participants at the conference defined the traditional ways of reserve management and distinguished them from new models. In the past there had been no unified form of managing reserves all over the world, but the general purpose of foreign exchange reserves had always been for international payment and for avoiding financial crisis, with more emphasis on the liquidity. The rapid growth of foreign exchange reserves in China and other Asian countries were analyzed and related to the policy response of these countries in the wake of the Asia financial crisis.
