The fragile and slow recovery of the global economy is revamping the debate on the economic model and objectives of central banks and whether fiscal and monetary policies have reached their effective limits. Chatham House in conjunction with the Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI) will host this roundtable discussion on the role of central banks in maintaining financial stability and facilitating economic growth in 2013.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only. The event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
