    Regulators and Private Sector Meet to Discuss COVID Policy Responses

    May 26, 2020

    Financial policymakers and international standard-setters met virtually with private-sector executives to discuss international policy responses to COVID-19 pandemic. The meeting explored the effectiveness of prudential and other financial policy measures taken to date, including experiences with their implementation. Participants also discussed policy issues going forward, notably how financial institutions can better cope with the challenges resulting from rising solvency risks, and exchanged views on the potential areas that may warrant further policy coordination. The discussion at the meeting will help inform ongoing work in the FSB, BCBS, CPMI, IAIS, and IOSCO and will serve as an input into the FSB report on COVID-19 policy responses to the July G20 meeting.

    The meeting, which was organized by the FSB's Standing Committee on Supervisory and Regulatory Cooperation (SRC), in cooperation with BCBS, CPMI, IAIS, and IOSCO, brought together senior representatives from central banks, regulatory authorities, and finance ministries as well as about 30 international banks, insurance firms, asset managers, market infrastructures, and credit rating agencies. The meeting was chaired by Himino Ryozo, Chair of the SRC and Vice Minister for International Affairs, Japan Financial Services Agency. Post the meeting, Mr. Himino Ryozo said: "The global financial system entered the crisis with much enhanced resilience and, with central bank intervention, the liquidity stress in March was largely contained. But the world still faces an unprecedented level of uncertainties. Participants discussed issues which may arise in different phases of the crisis under a range of scenarios. Insights gained today will help the private and official sectors act to ensure financing to the economy, financial stability, and eventually, a strong recovery."
