About the workshop
Date: 17 October 2022
The workshop aims to address frontier issues in the area of international capital flows, including the distributional effects of capital flows, and how they are affected by digitalization and climate change. It will also consider how the policy challenges associated with volatile capital flows may be exacerbated by the growing role of nonbank financial institutions (NBFIs), and by cyclical factors such as inflation-driven monetary policy normalization in advanced economies. In addition, the workshop will seek to identify the appropriate mix of policy tools – including CFMs, macroprudential measures, monetary policy tools, and foreign exchange intervention – to help address these policy challenges. Finally, the workshop will discuss the consequences for capital flows of a more fragmented international financial system.
The one-day workshop will bring together academics and policy makers to deepen our understanding of global capital flows. Health and travel conditions permitting, the workshop will be held at an International Monetary Fund in Washington DC on October 17, 2022. If travel restrictions still remain in place, the workshop will be held in virtual format.
The event will include remarks by senior officials of the organizing institutions, a keynote speech, and a high level panel discussion that will address frontier issues on capital flows and key policy challenges.
