Programme Funded by Global Development Network and Hosted by Oceania Development Network and School of Economics,the University of the South Pacific
Hosted by the Oceania Development Network and School of Economics, the University of the South Pacific, a policy dialogue on macroeconomic volatility in the Pacific provided a timely platform for high-level policy makers, academics, eminent experts and stakeholders within the region to address challenges of macroeconomic volatility and take a fresh look at how macroeconomic policy tools could better address the issue. The event was supported by GDN as part of its project on Cross-Regional Dialogue on Macroeconomic Volatility and Regional Monetary and Fiscal Policies. The key objective of the policy dialogue was to identify the key sources of macroeconomic volatility in the region and identify appropriate macroeconomic policy measures to improve resilience of these economies to external shocks and resulting internal volatility, in light of growing challenges presenting Pacific Island countries.
