Banque de France's Annual Report 2015

International Symposium

CENTRAL BANKING: THE WAY FORWARD?

Global imbalances, in particular the polarisation of current account deficits and surpluses, have increased during the 2000s, until the outbreak of the financial crisis. As underlined by G20 heads of States and Government: "inconsistent and insufficiently coordinated macroeconomic policies, inadequate structural reforms […] led to unsustainable global macroeconomic outcomes." (summit on financial markets and the world economy, Washington, November 15, 2008). This leads to today’s key question of regulation in the face of global imbalances.

This international symposium, organised by the Banque de France, will bring together a wide group of central bank governors, leading academics from all over the world as well as senior officials of major financial institutions and international organisations. The participants will debate themes that are relevant to the G20 French presidency, such as the reform of the regulation of the international monetary and financial system or the progress in the coordination of economic and financial policies.

This conference will be broadcasted in live on Friday, November 7th from 9 hours on Banque de France website. Connect!

Rue de la Banque No. 28, July 2016 - Changes in financial fragmentation in the euro area since 2008

There is said to be financial fragmentation when bond issuers located in the so-called “periphery” face higher credit risk premia than issuers with the same characteristics located in the “core” countries. This financial fragmentation peaked during the sovereign debt crisis and has receded since the announcement of the Outright Monetary Transactions (OMTs) programme by the ECB.
