IMF head laments ‘loss of momentum’ in financial reform

In Uncategorized on June 18, 2010 at 4:25 am

World leaders’ commitment to global reforms of the financial sector is flagging, IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn said on Thursday

 World leaders’ commitment to global reforms of the financial sector is flagging, IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn said on Thursday.


“I am sometimes a bit worried about the loss of momentum” in the reform of the financial sector, in face of the “huge” task ahead, Strauss-Kahn told a conference.


Previously, “leaders were very committed to do something in the financial sector but as the crisis vanished, most of them are more concerned by domestic questions,” the head of the International Monetary Fund said.


“It would be unfair to say that the momentum has disappeared … nevertheless I don’t see the pressure as big and strong as it was a few months ago,” Strauss-Kahn added.


Governments in the United States and Europe have been scrambling to revamp and adapt banking rules since the collapse of US investment bank Lehman Brothers in September 2008 sparked a global credit crunch.


The IMF however has said that more direct measures than those proposed so far are needed, such as levies tied to risk presented by individual banks or limits to the size of their business.


Strauss-Kahn also said he was concerned about the consistency in priorities in financial reform across borders, citing different approaches in the United States and Italy as examples.


“Having an inconsistent system in the biggest economies … is of course creating new cause for regulatory arbitrage and the trigger for the next crisis.


“The countries having experienced some problems in the financial sector, namely the US and the European countries, are really keen to do something,” he said.


However, those countries that have not had major problems in the financial sector, like Canada and some emerging economies, tend to say that major reforms are not needed, he added.

Climate talks to boost momentum for deal: UN official

In World on September 10, 2009 at 8:01 am

UNITED NATIONS, Sept 9, 2009 (AFP) – The one-day UN meeting on climate change in New York later this month is intended to generate political momentum ahead of a landmark climate summit in December, according to a top UN official.


The September 22 talks are “intended to provide political momentum at the highest level to accelerate progress toward a deal in Copenhagen,” said Janos Pasztor, director of UN chief Ban Ki-moon’s Climate Change Support Team, at a news conference Tuesday.

UN officials said they expect many heads of state at the September meeting, including, in what would be his first time at top-level international climate talks, US President Barack Obama.


Saying that “progress has been much too slow” on negotiations, Pasztor noted there were only 15 more days of negotiations available ahead of Copenhagen.


“The full engagement of world leaders is absolutely essential,” Pasztor urged, adding that all 192 member states of the world body are invited to attend the talks.


Although he said the informal talks on the sidelines of the UN’s annual general assembly meet would not produce a formal declaration, the momentum should boost movement towards “a fair, effective and ambitious deal” in December.


In Copenhagen, world leaders will try to seal a new accord to fight climate change after the Kyoto Protocol requirements expire in 2012.


Speaking to AFP in Norway earlier this month, the UN secretary general criticized world leaders for often acting in the interests of their own countries.


“Climate change affects everyone. It doesn’t respect borders. So political leaders should act as world leaders,” Ban said.


Foreign ministers from major European countries meanwhile joined the pleas Tuesday for parties to the upcoming UN climate talks in Copenhagen to start negotiating earnestly, and said that only a wider deal in December would prompt the European Union to advance its own offer on emissions reduction.


“We are here with a warning, and the warning is that the world will sleepwalk towards December and not realise that it has to up its game if we are to get a deal,” British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said in Paris.


“The warning is that Copenhagen is in the balance. The warning is that if we leave it to business as usual and negotiations as usual, we will not get the sort of deal that we need.”
