Despite a series of initiatives, Japan’s financial sector remains weak and is holding back prospects for a sustained economic recovery. This appraisal, which is the product of a careful diagnostic examination under the IMF and World Bank’s joint Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP), urges Japan to intensify efforts to address nonperforming loans in the banking sector and tackle the structural reforms needed to produce a healthy financial system. Stefan Ingves, Director of the IMF’s Monetary and Financial Systems Department, and Paul Hilbers, Area Chief in that department, led the assessment effort. They speak with the IMF Survey about the assessment and its findings.

National authorities have been giving bond market development more prominence on their agendas, but in many countries these markets remain largely underdeveloped. A new IMF study identifies common fundamental requirements for developing deep and liquid local corporate bond markets. Authors Pipat Luengnaruemitchai and Li Lian Ong (IMF International Capital Markets and Monetary and Financial Systems Departments) discussed their findings with Jacqueline Irving of the IMF Survey.
