BSP-RBWC International Research Conference "Shifting Gears, Changing Lanes: Central Banking in a PostCOVID Economic World"

About the Conference


Cognizant of the rapidly evolving policy environment, this high-level conference will cover the following topics: (1) central banking and dealing with the enduring impact of COVID-19; (2) new monetary policy era for emerging markets; (3) forecasting future crises; (4) payment innovation, financial inclusion and financial stability risks; (5) monetary sovereignty and the path towards the digitalization of money; (6) climate change risk as a redefining issue for financial stability; and (7) the global economy post-COVID.

The BSP International Research Conference is a biennial event that engages central banks and leading experts from academia in the discussion of emerging and pressing policy issues. The 2021 conference marks the first time that the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) is joined by the Reinventing Bretton Woods Committee (RBWC). The partnership could not have been more timely. The breadth and depth of the COVID-19 crisis have profound social, health, economic, and geopolitical ramifications. Central banks are confronted with multiple policy issues that may persist in the years to come and can, potentially, serve as fodder to future crises.
