Strengthening Financial Systems in Asia: Considering How Japanese Institutions Can Contribute While Benefitting its Society

Related Tags

We have seen a series of policy efforts to strengthen financial systems in Asia in the aftermath of the Asian financial crisis twenty years ago. As a result, financial systems in Asia appear sound and resilient, but there remain challenges in certain areas. Advancing the performance of financial systems would require additional policy efforts. In this context, how does the Government of Japan join continued efforts to address such challenges? How about Japanese private financial institutions? The main question to be asked is how the Government of Japan and Japanese financial institutions could contribute to strengthening financial systems in Asia in a way that is also beneficial to Japan. At the macro-level, Japan as a mature creditor nation needs to seek investment returns to sustain levels of income in its ageing society. Then, what are the prerequisites for the objective at the micro-level? My proposal is to consider the issue by asking how a public-private partnership approach to financial systems could be successful in achieving dual goals for Japan (a) to contribute to upgrading Asia’s financial systems, and (b) to sustain levels of national income in its ageing society.
