About the workshop
Date: 17 October 2022, International Monetary Fund, Washington DC
The one-day workshop will bring together academics and policymakers to address frontier issues in international capital flows. These issues include the distributional effects of capital flows and how they are affected by digitalization and climate change. The workshop 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 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. Lastly, the workshop will discuss the consequences of capital flows in a more fragmented international financial system.
The event will include seven academic papers with discussants, remarks by senior officials of the organizing institutions, a keynote speech, and a high-level panel discussion addressing frontier issues on capital flows and key policy challenges.
The workshop will take place at the International Monetary Fund in Washington, DC, on 17 October 2022, health and travel conditions permitting. The workshop will be held in virtual format if the health situation deteriorates.
