Background information on International Banking Conference.

International Banking Conference Series

The annual Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago International Finance Conference is designed to focus on important current international issues in banking and finance that are best analyzed by bringing together researchers and policymakers from different countries and different perspectives. The conference is generally cosponsored with a major international organization in order to enhance both the transnational visibility and credibility. The topics are selected because they have important public policy implications across countries and the papers and presentations emphasize the public policy aspects. Both the program speakers and audience are targeted with this objective in mind. Thus, participants are selected from both a broad cross-section of countries and a broad cross-section of affiliations, including government officials, regulators, industry practitioners and academics. The number of participants is limited to encourage active participation by all.
