International Seminar on Financial Stability:
“Financial Stability through Effective Crisis Management
and Inter-Agency Coordination”
Bali, 6-7 December 2012

The 2008 global financial crisis has evolved into an ongoing sovereign debt crisis in Europe. Both economic policies and institutions in the Eurozone are now forced to make difficult adjustments to restore the situation. In today’s increasingly interconnected economy and financial markets, the development in Eurozone is closely watched by the rest of the world. Emerging market countries, including Indonesia, are not immune from possible spillover of the Europe’s catastrophe, particularly through the financial and trade channels. It is a challenge to maintain financial stability in the presence of large and volatile capital flows induced by the crisis.

Over the last decade, addressing financial stability has risen to the top of the policy agenda of many countries. As recent experiences in global financial crisis have shown, financial stability is essential for promoting economic growth and raising living standard. Without financial stability, banks are reluctant to finance profitable projects and asset prices may deviate from their intrinsic values. In its attempt to maintain financial stability, Indonesia is facing unique circumstances with the recent establishment of Otoritas Jasa Keuangan (Financial Service Authority), an agency charged with oversight of the country’s overall financial sector. In addition to the need for extra resources, the new institution potentially raise some coordination problems that should be addressed early in order to achieve the goal of a stable and sound financial system.

The International Seminar on Financial System Stability is one of our attempts to enhance our skill and competence in promoting Indonesia’s financial system stability. Jointly organized by four agencies within Coordination Forum for Financial System Stability, thisseminar gathers prominent speakers from public and private institutions and provides a venue to discuss latest development in the subject of financial stability. By learning from other countries experiences in preventing and mitigating crisis, we also hope to develop an effective crisis management protocol and resolution framework that spans across multiple government institutions.
