MAS in the International Arena

Facilitating Information Exchange and Technical Assistance
MAS continues to contribute to technical assistance efforts with regional central banks and financial agencies.

We send speakers and trainers to conduct training sessions at regional central banks or in programmes organised by regional training providers such as the Southeast Asian Central Banks Centre for training, the Asian Development Bank, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Financial Regulators Training Initiative and the International Monetary Fund (IMF)-Singapore Training Institute. In addition, we host study visits and attachments and provide resource persons to assessment programs like the Financial Sector Assessment Programme (FSAP).

Leveraging on our experience in developing and conducting in-house functional training for financial supervisors, and in response to increasing training requests from regional regulators, MAS launched a regional banking supervisors’ training programme. This programme aims to introduce MAS' supervisory approaches and practices, to share our experience in key aspects of banking supervision with fellow regulators in the region and to provide an opportunity for exchange of views. An inaugural two-week training programme was organised in May 2005, with participants from 13 Asian countries.
