Korea’s Centrality in

East Asian Financial Cooperation

The Global Financial Crisis highlighted the importance of international coordination to prevent, manage, and resolve financial crises. To this end, global institutions such as the G20 and IMF have garnered significant attention, but complementary institutions at the regional level also play an important role. In East and Southeast Asia, these can be traced back to the years after the 1997-1998 financial crisis. While the 2008 financial crisis did not hit the region as hard as the previous one did, it spurred efforts to expand and strengthen these regional financial governance initiatives. Though it may not be the largest economy in these initiatives, South Korea has increasingly played a central role in their advancement, such as the Chiang Mai Initiative Multilateralization and ASEAN+3 Macroeconomic Research Office.

KEI invites you to join us for a discussion on why Korea has become increasingly central to regional financial governance and the importance of this centrality at a time when regional financial governance may be challenged by Sino-Japanese competition.
