International conference gathers banking and economic development experts
The Center for Banking and Finance Research in Rio (CBFR) of FGV’s Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE) will host the International Conference on Banking and Economic Development on December 6 and 7. Held in partnership with FGV’s Brazilian School of Economics and Finance (EPGE), the meeting will gather some of the top researchers in the fields of banking and finances along with market professionals from Brazil and abroad. The event will be held in room 111 of EBAPE’s main office (Rua Jornalista Orlando Dantas, 30, Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro).
Currently in its third edition, the International Conference on Banking and Economic Development promotes academic debate on current affairs related to the economic and financial scenarios. Throughout the two-day event, scholars from the best universities worldwide will present some of their most relevant papers to raise awareness on key aspects of global impact in the financial realm.
Monikers like Thorsten Beck, from University of London; Meghana Ayyagari, from the University of Washington; Maria Soledad Martinez Peria, IMF researcher; Gregory F. Udell, from Indiana University; Bernardus Van Doornik, from the Central Bank; Armando Gomes, from Washington University in St. Louis; David Schoenherr, from Princeton University; and Zigan Wang, from University of Hong Kong, are among the guests.
Scholars, market professionals, FGV professors and students will discuss topics such as evidence of credit, relationships between corporations and banks, real exchange rate, innovation and productivity, fintechs, financial inclusion, business growth, banking deregulation, and participation in the stock market.
According to Patrick Behr, CBFR coordinator and EBAPE professor, the subjects covered in the event are extremely important at a time when the country is about to set a new economic and financial course. “Although we’ve been preparing for this event since January, the chosen topics are a perfect fit for the current national debate surrounding the new administration’s impending changes to the economic policy,” said the professor.
