Wider use of local-currency-denominated bonds for cross-border collateral transactions would serve as a key enabler for developing regional bond markets by alleviating the collateral costs of financial institutions and expanding market liquidity. The webinar will explain the factors to be considered for the market development and provide recommendations for future consideration under ASEAN+3.

Form and Duration:

The webinar will consist of information sharing and question and answer sessions for one hour: a 30-minute expert presentation and 20 minutes for question and answer.

Target Audience:

This CSIF webinar will invite CSIF and ABMF members and observers, including market players and experts from the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, as well as government officials from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) plus the People's Republic of China, Japan, and the Republic of Korea, collectively known as ASEAN+3.

The Cross-Border Settlement Infrastructure Forum (CSIF)

The Cross-Border Settlement Infrastructure Forum was established in 2013 by the ASEAN+3 finance ministers under ABMI. The members of CSIF are composed of the central banks and central securities depositories of the ASEAN+3 economies. CSIF is mandated to facilitate discussions of the ASEAN+3 region's cross-border bond and cash settlement infrastructure, including the establishment of a regional settlement intermediary.
