Asia and the IMF


  • Stanley Fischer


This lecture series begins with a discussion of the reforms that have undertaken in the IMF since the mid-1990s, and particularly since the start of the Asian economic crisis. It concludes with a discussion of the potential future roles of IMF in Asia, and of Asian countries in the IMF, particularly in the light of the emerging regional financial arrangements.
