Turning up the Volume—Asia’s Voice and Leadership in Global Policymaking
iMFdirect blog by Naoyuki Shinohara, Deputy Managing Director
Asia’s voice is getting louder and the IMF—and, indeed, the world—is listening. I am writing from Daejeon, Korea where the Fund and the government of Korea are hosting together a high-level international conference over the next two days.
- Build a shared vision to support sustained economic growth in Asia, while drawing lessons from the past in a candid and constructive manner;
- Showcase Asia’s success in economic management, and highlight lessons for other regions;
- Examine Asia’s growth model, its prospects going forward, and the implications of change for the global economy;
- Discuss Asia’s role in the international community, including the IMF, in this process.
