Seminar: FSA's Approach for Financial Technical Cooperation

Event | 19 March 2014 ADBI, Tokyo, Japan


ADBI's Seminar Series brings eminent persons to ADBI to encourage debate among policymakers, researchers, academics, think tanks, and other audiences interested in economic development challenges in the Asia and Pacific region.


Jutaro Kaneko is the director for Technical Cooperation and International Cooperation of Financial Services Agency (FSA), Japan. He joined the FSA in 2011 and has participated in the development of global standards in payment and settlement as well as OTC derivatives reforms. Previously he worked for the Bank of Japan. He earned a master's degree in law from the University of Colon, Germany in 2004, and a PhD degree in international studies from Waseda University in 2013.


Financial Services Agency (FSA) is accelerating its activities to strengthen cooperative relationships with other Asian financial authorities to enhance financial infrastructures (e.g., laws and regulations, stock exchanges, know-how on financial policy planning and implementation). Such activities include mid- and long-term staff exchange programs through a new FSA's facility, Asia Financial Partnership Center, which will serve as a knowledge hub for financial regulators in Asia. Against this backdrop, this presentation will share the FSA's empirical findings and seek inputs on how to provide financial technical assistance in an effective and systematic manner.


Policymakers, academics, outside researchers, and the general public; approximately 30 participants.
