Marialena Athanasopoulou at 7th Joint RFA Research Seminar

Bogotá, Colombia


The ASEAN+3 Macroeconomic Research Office (AMRO), the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), and the Latin American Reserve Fund (FLAR) initiated this annual joint research seminar series in 2017. The event brings together scholars, policymakers, economists from central banks and finance ministries, as well as representatives from regional financing arrangements (RFAs), the IMF and other IFIs. It seeks to encourage discussion on issues related to RFA mandates, such as the effectiveness of providing liquidity during times of crises, early warning systems and sovereign risks, as well as on broader regional and global economic developments and challenges.

Marialena Athanasopoulou, ESM Deputy Head of Economic Risk Analysis, will chair a panel on, "Policy Exchange on Debt and Fiscal Challenges and Priorities".

The event will also be livestreamed. Please see the event website for more details.
