Seminar on inglise keeles. Joseph Lau, Adjunct Professor, Tartu University, Estonia 2003-2015 & Adjunct Professor, National University of Singapore will present:
Competitiveness and Economic Development in Singapore: The Role of the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
Abstract: The seminar commences with a short introduction on Singapore’s abrupt independence, after which the country was caught in a precarious situation with no resources, a highly dependent trading economy and no defence force. How did Singapore approach the situation? Monetary functions were performed by government departments and agencies before 1970. The process of consolidation began with the inauguration of an institution that oversees various monetary functions associated with banking and finance. The institution went through a series of metamorphoses, merging with other government agencies while functioning as central bank of Singapore. However, it does not function like other central banks such as the Federal Reserve System or the Bank of England. What mechanism does the Monetary Authority of Singapore regulate? How does this regulatory mechanism contribute to a sustainable competitive advantage of Singapore?
The seminar is held in English. Copies of the paper will be available at the seminar.
