Abstract

On 26 and 27 January 2006, the BIS, in collaboration with the Bank of Jamaica, hosted a meeting for senior central bankers in Kingston, Jamaica, under the broad theme "Evolving banking systems in Latin America and the Caribbean: challenges and implications for monetary policy and financial stability". The meeting was chaired by Már Gudmundsson, Deputy Head of the Monetary and Economic Department of the BIS, with the purpose of discussing how the smaller economies of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) have dealt with the transformation of their financial system during the last decade.
