ASEAN+3 Economic Cooperation and Financial Stability Forum

The global and regional economies face many headwinds, from the COVID-19 pandemic, to geopolitical conflicts, and tightening global financial conditions, in addition to challenges from several structural changes.

AMRO establishes this annual regional flagship platform for policymakers, experts and international financial institutions to gather to exchange insights on macroeconomic and financial stability issues.

The theme of this year’s Forum is Forging Resilience and Sustainability amid Uncertainty. Speakers will share their views on global and regional economic and financial developments, as well as challenges and opportunities from the perspective of securing macroeconomic and financial stability. They will weigh in on how ASEAN+3 can rise above the looming risks and challenges through unilateral efforts of national authorities and through strong multilateralism toward a common goal.

Join the conversation on December 2, 2022!
