  PROMOTING INFORMATION EXCHANGE AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE
 

As part of our regulatory cooperation, MAS is actively involved in technical assistance initiatives through collaboration with central banks and financial agencies.

MAS organised the inaugural and second run of the MAS Regional Banking Supervisors’ Training Programme in May and November 2005 respectively. The two runs of the training programme were well-received by participants from 12 countries. MAS organised the third run of this training programme in May 2006.

MAS also provided trainers and speakers for programmes organised by 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-Singapore Training Institute (IMF-STI).

In December 2005, MAS helped the APG conduct a training workshop on anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing for officials from APG countries. The workshop was held at the IMF-STI and co-hosted by the IMF-STI and MAS. In addition, we hosted study visits and attachments and provided resource persons for assessment programs like the Financial Sector Assessment Programme (FSAP).

To promote capacity building and enhance regulatory cooperation in the securities arena, MAS hosted the Capital Markets Seminar, a regional training programme for securities regulators, in August 2005. From 2007 onwards, MAS will work with the Toronto Centre to host a joint Regional Securities Markets Regulation Leadership Program.
