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):
Annual International Conference on Policy Challenges for the Financial Sector
This invitation only program aims to provide senior policymakers a forum for identifying, developing, and challenging responses to financial sector 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.
Presentations serve as a setting for extensive discussions and exchanges of experiences among the participants. Debates will encompass major economic, legal, and institutional strategies and policies that are necessary to ensure that appropriate regulatory and prudential safeguards are in place to support sound and sustainable economic growth.
Annual Seminar for Senior Bank Supervisors from Emerging Economies
This invitation only seminar will focus on discussions of the principal policy issues facing bank supervisors in developing countries today. It will establish the linkages between financial system health and macroeconomic performance. In addition, the seminar will discuss the causes of financial system distress and possible solutions, including problem bank resolution and bank restructuring.
The discussions will be led by a distinguished group of experts from the bank supervisory agencies, academic institutions, and thought leaders in the financial industry.
