Session 4: The Future of GMS and Asian Financial Integration - Challenges and Policy Options

Integrating capital markets is a multi-faceted endeavor. First, it requires cooperation among regulators and exchanges in the region. Second, it requires regulatory and institutional harmonization which may be particularly challenging in the context of GMS and ASEAN. Given that institutional development takes time, does it make sense to “lean” on partner countries’ infrastructures and institutions? Integration strategies may imply different tradeoffs between growth, stability, and domestic institutional development. How can authorities come together to weigh the benefits and costs and arrive at a win-win solution?
