The Global Development Network renewed its partnership with Banque de France to organize an innovative four-day seminar ‘Research Agenda for Central Banks’ from 4-7 June 2019, in Paris, France.

The seminar explored how in-house research capabilities of developing countries’ central banks can be strengthened to address strategic and operational needs, viewing central banks as not just institutions of macro-finance, but also as social actors. The seminar also discussed how research can be made accessible, stressing on the importance of doing economic research, capacity building, developing research systems, and organizing and communicating research.

Central bank officials from the research and strategy divisions of Czech Republic, Ethiopia, Jordan, Kuwait, Lithuania, Nepal, the Philippines, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Tunisia, and Turkey participated in the seminar. Senior officials from Banque de France, the Global Development Network and the International Banking and Finance Institute addressed the delegates.
