Highlight 2012: “Sustainability of National Financial Systems: Searching the New Approaches”

The year 2011 brought the events of considerable significance for the global financial system: the devastating earthquakes and tsunami in Japan undermined the world processing industry; “Arabian Spring” caused the oil prices growth; the Euro Zone experiences intensifying tension at financial and sovereign debt markets; the economic growth of the USA slows down; the confrontation on the raise of the maximal size of the national debt of the USA produced distrust to the government policy.

Such background necessitated to reconsider the forecasts of the global growth to the lower side, especially in respect of the developed countries. According to the World Economic Outlook by the International Monetary Fund for October 2011, in 2011 and 2012 the growth of the global real GDP will make 4% which is about 1/2 percentage point lower than forecasted in April 2011. Standard&Poor’s claimed the decrease of the sovereign credit rating of European states in the beginning of 2012.

The given situation requires urgent actions to restore the stability and find new approaches to resolve the existing recession in the financial world.

The aim of the Conference: to demonstrate the dynamics of the global financial development in the conditions of the on-going economic and financial crisis, analyze the newly emerging problems and delineate the prospects of the world bank system in the nearest future.
