2019 Central Bank of the Future Conference

The 2019 Central Bank of the Future conference convened international experts and practitioners to examine how the core functions of a central bank contribute to financial inclusion, poverty alleviation, and a more inclusive economy – and what could be improved. Topics included, among other areas, technology and financial inclusion, digital currencies (fiat and non-fiat), distributive ledgers, and cross-border payments, and anti-money laundering (AML) practices. Videos of both days' panels are available below the following conference agenda.
