The complexity and the uncertainty of the global economy require macroeconomic policy makers and managers to work with the latest economic information, the freshest innovative thinking, and the best new approaches to macroeconomic management. With the generous support of the Japanese government and the IMF, the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS) will host the sixth Japan-IMF Macroeconomic Seminar for Asia (JIMS). The theme of JIMS2017 is “Achieving Sustainable Growth under Globalization.” JIMS will invite leading scholars and practitioners to share their insights on three critical issues: 1) Managing Financial Stability and Capital Flows 2) Fiscal Management and Debt Sustainability 3) Structural Reforms and Growth Policies in Asia. JIMS welcomes the participation of senior macroeconomic policy makers from Asia Pacific countries and provides a forum for a candid and productive exchange of views and sharing of country-specific experiences. JIMS will serve as a platform for macroeconomic policy dialogue and will contribute to policy coordination for regional economic growth and integration.
