Of the many international training programs conducted in the United States (listed on the Courses page and included in the U.S. Schedule), please take special note of two annual programs that the Federal Reserve System conducts jointly with the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF):
19th Annual International Conference on Policy Challenges for the Financial Sector
June 5-7, 2019
This three-day program is designed for senior level officials from around the world who hold key positions in the financial sector. These officials generally are governors, deputy governors, heads, or deputy heads of banking supervisory authorities, or high-level staff involved in, or capable of, influencing policy formulation as it concerns the supervision and regulation of banks in their respective countries.
The program aims to provide policy makers a forum for identifying and developing appropriate responses to strategy and policy issues. It explores current policy issues, disseminates research in the financial sector, and creates awareness of financial sector issues discussed in international forums. Participation in this event is by invitation only.
