International relations

Central banks are strongly involved in various international fora at a regional and global level. Also, a close monitoring of the global economy and the international monetary and financial system is essential for formulating monetary policy and assessing risks to financial stability. This seminar will focus on the description of the major international fora at the regional and global level and the key issues on the agenda of central banks. It will also address issues related to the monitoring of the global economic environment; country risks and financial imbalances. Speakers will come from Banque de France and major international organisations (IMF, BIS, ECB).
