The Tun Ismail Ali Chair (TIAC) at the University of Malaya, in collaboration with BNM, is pleased to announce the 3rd Monetary and Financial Economics Workshop, to be held on 16 July 2018, at Sasana Kijang, Kuala Lumpur. The organising committee would like to invite Malaysia-based academics, postgraduate students, economists from the private sector and think-tanks to participate in the workshop.

Description of the workshop 

This workshop aims to facilitate the exchange of research ideas, findings, and insights on some of the key implications of policies that were introduced during global financial crisis on emerging market economies (EMEs). The first session of the workshop will cover the spillover impact to emerging economies from monetary policy normalisation in advanced economies, and the second session will explore the relationship between public debt levels and growth as well as the sustainable threshold in developing economies. The workshop will feature papers by recipients of the 2017 TIAC Research Grant.
