Asian perspective on fixing the global financial crisis

by Deirdre de Burca. Andrew Sheng, who heads up a new global think tank called the Fung Global Institute, made an excellent presentation to the Institute of European Affairs yesterday. He was invited to speak about an Asian perspective on fixing the global crisis by Patrick Honohan, the Governor of the Irish Central Bank. Attached is a PDF version of the slides that accompanied Sheng’s presentation.

Andrew Sheng is well known in global financial circles as a former central banker and financial regulator in Asia and a commentator on global finance. As the Institute’s President, Andrew is responsible for its operations and, with the support and advice of the Academic Board, for driving its research agenda and thought leadership.

He is also the Chief Adviser to the China Banking Regulatory Commission and a Board Member of the Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority, Khazanah Nasional Berhad, and Sime Darby Berhad, Malaysia. In addition, he serves as a member of the International Advisory Council of the China Investment Corporation, the China Development Bank, the Advisory Council on Shanghai as an international financial centre and the International Council of the Freie University, Berlin.

  1. Dr Sheng’s prognosis and his proposed Asian solution to the GFC are easy to understand and undoubtedly difficult to implement. Let’s hope the world will be a better place as we all live as one.
