2-3 March 2009, Tokyo, Japan
The OECD-ADBI Tenth Roundtable on Capital Market Reform in Asia ("Tokyo Roundtable") was held on 2-3 March 2009 at the ADBI (Asian Development Bank Institute) in Tokyo. The Tokyo Roundtable was jointly organised and sponsored by the ADBI and the OECD, in cooperation with the Government of Japan.
The Tokyo Roundtable was established in 1999 in the aftermath of the Asian financial crisis, and has almost annually offered a forum for discussion among Asian/OECD member countries' regulators, policy- makers, experts, practitioners, scholars and international organisations on topics of main interest from the viewpoint of capital market reform in Asia.
The topics of the Tenth Tokyo Roundtable are pertinent both to the ongoing global financial crisis and priority issues in the OECD’s Committee on Financial Markets. Discussions focused on:
Session 1: Global Financial Crisis: Causes, impacts, policy responses, latest developments & trends
Session 2: Impact of the Global Financial Crisis on Asia & the Asian Response
Session 3: Implications of Current Market Turmoil
3.1: Stock and Bond Markets
3.2: Unregulated Entities, Products and Market
Session 4: Financial Education and Awareness
