APEC Financial Regulators Training Initiative (FRTI) managed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) - 2017 Training Schedule Open to IOSCO Regulators
The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Finance Ministers endorsed the establishment of the APEC Financial Regulators Training Initiative (FRTI) in May 1998 to strengthen financial supervision and regulation in the region by enhancing the analytical and technical capacity of bank supervisors and securities regulators. To implement APEC FRTI, a Secretariat was established at the Asian Development Bank (ADB) Headquarters in Manila, Philippines and is responsible for coordinating the design of the training programs, sourcing presenters and implementing the training activities. APEC FRTI seminars are primarily targeted at junior and mid-level staff of financial supervisory and regulatory agencies and stock and derivatives exchanges. The Secretariat invites and accepts nominations for participants from central banks, monetary authorities, prudential regulators and securities and futures regulatory agencies and stock and futures exchanges.
The APEC FRTI Secretariat has kindly extended an invitation to all IOSCO members, provided they are financial regulators, to send nominations for participants in any of their training seminars scheduled for 2017.
