South Korea holds training programme for senior financial officials from Asia

Seoul, South Korea began an annual training programme for senior financial officials from 13 Asian nations on Monday to share its financial policies and boost cooperation with regional partner nations, the finance ministry said.

The 16th training programme, set to run until Friday, brought together 20 director-level officials of finance ministries and central banks from 13 nations, including Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Kazakhstan, and Mongolia, according to the Ministry of Economy and Finance, Yonhap News Agency reported.

The programme will focus on sharing South Korea’s major financial policies and experiences leading to economic development through meetings with experts and visits to the Bank of Korea and other major financial institutions, the ministry said.

South Korea launched the programme in 2006 to enhance economic and financial exchanges and cooperation with ASEAN and central Asian nations, and the face-to-face programme resumed last year after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
