We were pleased to host the IIF EM Central Banking in the Age of COVID-19 Summit. The event was offered to IIF members via live stream on Monday, November 23 and Tuesday, November 24 as a follow up to several well attended sessions on Central Banking and Emerging Markets at our recent Annual Membership Meeting.

The Summit served as a unique platform for IIF members to hear first-hand how policymakers in emerging markets responded to COVID-19 in a way that represents a break from previous crises. During the Summit, central bankers from different jurisdictions across emerging markets discussed monetary easing, the implications of ballooning fiscal deficits for central banks, and whether emerging markets can afford extraordinarily easy monetary policy for long.
