Event Detail

Central Banking During Times of Armed Conflict: A Private Members Executive Briefing

Any Central Bank which finds itself in a conflict situation faces singular circumstances. Situations depend on the causes of the conflict, the parties involved, how it affects the institutional set up in the country and how it plays out. This shapes the role the Central Bank plays and its relationship with the various players.

GIC Members are invited to a private College of Central Bankers Executive Briefing with speakers, Mustapha K. Nabli, Former Governor of the Central Bank of Tunisia, and Ajmal Ahmady, Senior Fellow at Harvard University and Former Governor of the Central Bank of Afghanistan. They’ll be joined in conversation with moderator, Michael McKee, International Economics and Policy Correspondent for Bloomberg Television and Radio.

Dr. Nabli will illustrate the role of the Central Bank using the case of the Libya conflict which has been ongoing for more than 10 years.

Dr. Ahmady will discuss the challenges faced, policies implemented, and events since August 15th of last year as Afghanistan’s central bank was responsible for maintaining macroeconomic stability in the midst of state collapse. In this challenging environment, the central bank was able to maintain inflation at low single digits, built a modern payments system, and prevented financial sector failures.

This webinar is complimentary for GIC Members.
