Banking Sector Reform
The main objectives were to provide better insights of the main business and operations of banking institutions and to enhance their understanding and practical skills in bank supervision, risk management and restructuring.
The seminar was conceived in the belief that governments of developing countries in the region are keen on initiating measures to reform their banking sector but have limited technical capacity to design and implement reform measures. Initiatives such as this seminar are meant to contribute towards building capacity in this regard. The ADB Institute in collaboration with the SEACEN Centre, Kuala Lumpur, organized this Seminar at the Istana Hotel, in Kuala Lumpur on 14 - 23 August 2000. A total of 36 participants attended from Bangladesh; Cambodia; Hong Kong, China; India; Indonesia; Japan; Republic of Korea; Malaysia; Maldives; Mongolia; Myanmar; Nepal; Pakistan; Philippines; Singapore; Sri Lanka; Taipei,China; Thailand; and Viet Nam representing central banks and monetary authorities, government agencies, deposit insurance and supervisory organizations. Twenty resource persons shared their expertise and experiences in the discussions.
