Asia Drop-In: What does the recent banking sector turmoil mean for Asia?

Although the recent flare-up of financial stability concerns has been a US-Europe story, its reverberations could be global. Economists from across our Asia coverage held a special online briefing about what the turmoil in the banking sector could mean for the region – but also the threat posed by Asia-specific banking risks.

During this 20-minute session, the team addressed key issues, including:

  • Banking system vulnerabilities with Chinese characteristics;
  • What the economic fall-out from the US/European turmoil could mean for the region.
