The second ASEAN Financial Integration Framework (AFIF) training course on “Bank Business, Governance Structure and Risk Management” was held in August 8 – 12 August 2016 in Hanoi, Vietnam, following the first course on “Credit Risk” held in Myanmar in May 2016. Participants for both courses were central bank officers from Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Vietnam.
The training course through small working groups and case study exercise will enable participants to understand the major types of modern banking business models, bank’s balance sheet, major risks faced, and bank’s governance structure in relation to its risk management.
The training is part of the AADCP II’s project “Capacity Building of selected ASEAN Countries for ASEAN Financial Integration Framework (AFIF) – Phase II which is a continuation of an earlier capacity building initiative of ASEAN funded by AADCP II and implemented by South East Asian Central Banks Research and Training Centre (SEACEN), aimed at bridging the capacity gaps among the ASEAN Member States (AMS) in understanding issues and implementing initiatives to support ASEAN financial integration. AADCP II is to support the next remaining AFIF course which will be held in Cambodia in late August 2016.
