REGIONAL AND BILATERAL TRAINING
MAS contributes to the capacity building of regional central banks and regulatory authorities through structured training and technical cooperation programmes. In 2014, more than 80 participants from 25 countries attended both runs of the MAS Banking Supervisors' Training Programme and the MAS-Toronto Centre Regional Leadership Programme for Securities Regulators.
In February 2015, the Central Bank of Myanmar (CBM) and MAS agreed to enter into an MOU that includes technical cooperation and training. MAS conducted an in-country training programme for CBM's Financial Institutions Supervision Department in Yangon in January 2015. About 30 officials from both sides shared experiences and exchanged views on bank supervision approaches and practices.
MAS also collaborates with other partners such as the South East Asian Central Banks (SEACEN) Research and Training Centre, Civil Service College and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. For instance, MAS hosted in Singapore the SEACEN Signature Course on Crisis Management and Resolution, the SEACEN-CGFS Workshop on Banking and Regional Financial Integration, and the 16th SEACEN Conference of Directors of Supervision of the Asia-Pacific Economies in August 2014. MAS also contributed speakers to several of SEACEN's Learning Programmes conducted in member countries
