FSB published a summary of the Plenary meeting in Paris. At the meeting, the Plenary reviewed vulnerabilities in the global financial system, fintech developments (including developments in the crypto-asset markets), ongoing work of FSB, and the work program for 2020.

- FSB will publish a consultative report on regulatory issues of stablecoins in April 2020.

- The Plenary welcomed the completion of the final version of the holistic framework for assessment and mitigation of systemic risk in the insurance sector, which IAIS will publish next week, following an earlier stakeholder consultation.
- FSB work program for 2020 will be published toward the end of 2019 and the priorities of the work program include addressing new and emerging vulnerabilities in the financial system, harnessing the benefits of financial innovation while containing risks, finalizing and operationalizing post-crisis reforms, and monitoring the implementation and evaluating the effects of the reforms.
