Coping with Current Economic Challenges for Central Banking

July 14, 2022 (Online)



Since its inception in 2009 in Cusco,  this Annual Conference has established itself as a regular event for discussing pressing policy issues among central banks and leading experts from academia and the private sector. The current global context provides a crucial backdrop to continue and strengthen this valuable exchange of ideas. We hope that next year we will be able to again meet in person in the collegial atmosphere of the Sacred Valley.


The global economy is facing a combination of challenges seldom seen before, and Russia’s war against Ukraine piles a host of new risks onto the pre-existing ones created or exacerbated by a once-in-a-century pandemic. Rising global inflation and an uneven economic recovery figure prominently in the long list of risks that mark 2022. The Ukraine war seems set to trigger a reorganisation of international economic and financial relations. Is this new world may no longer rest on the premise of a single financial system and the ever-closer economic and financial integration from the Bretton Woods system and its successor arrangements?
