The outlook for the Asia-Pacific region is bright. Many countries continue to grow, helped by healthy business activity and robust government policies. But new challenges are manifold.

Director's Message
Dear Scholars, Learners, and STI Training partners:

I hope this message finds you safe and well.

During the last few months, the world has become a smaller place as countries around the globe face similar challenges and needs for mutual support. As the IMF Managing Director, Kristalina Georgieva, noted in a recent speech: “Exceptional times require exceptional actions” to save lives, protect livelihoods, and prepare for the recovery. Continued knowledge sharing and dialogue with experts has become an important ingredient in this process.

I am pleased to announce that the IMF – Singapore Regional Training Institute (STI) is launching new training modalities attuned to challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Happenings at STI




The High-Level Peer-to-Peer Forum on Monetary Policy in the ASEAN countries held in Singapore on July 9-10, 2018, was an extraordinarily well-organized and effective event. Representatives from ASEAN central banks gave detailed and transparent policy presentations on their different approaches to inflation targeting. The exchange of views (with the IMF and other international experts)—whether related to upcoming global challenges or local policy implementation—represented genuine progress toward improved monetary policy in the region.

Professor John B. Taylor

"I was privileged to have joined the course on Macroeconomic Diagnostics in Siem Reap during the last 2 weeks. It is actually an eye-opening training course, equipped with useful tools for detailed analysis of each main sector in the economy. As a policy maker, this tool is very important in keeping me informed of the condition of an economy and where necessary, introduce the most suitable policy/remedy to bring the economy back on track.”

Narin Kruy, Deputy Director,
Ministry of Economy and Finance

“Thank you for the two week MDS Course. It is very useful in many ways: it is more practical since there are workshops following each lecture. The lectures cover all sectors in the economy and emphasize the linkages between them. That is how we can conduct proper macroeconomic diagnosis. Lecturers are very experienced. I am confident that I will be able to apply the techniques and concepts I learnt from this course, to the context of Cambodia economy.”

Mon Sreyleak, Section Chief,
National Bank of Cambodia

Participants at the Macroeconomic
Diagnostics Course in Siem Reap said:

“I am very pleased to participate in the monetary policy course. Although it’s a virtual course, it is very helpful to improve theoretical and analytical knowledge and skills on the conduct of monetary policy. The content of the course is useful to my job. The knowledge gained from this course will be shared to my colleges and utilized effectively and efficiently in order to contribute to my organization. I would like to express my appreciation to IMF-Singapore Regional Training Institute for holding this course.”
