The Reserve Bank of New Zealand hosted the 18th Central Bank Macroeconomic Modelling Workshop. This annual series of workshops aims to give policymakers and academics the opportunity to discuss issues related to the class of models used for policy analysis.
This year's workshop on "Challenges for Open Economies" focused on the growing real and financial linkages among economies, and their implications for policy analysis. Topics of particular interest included exchange rate determination and impacts, the terms of trade and commodity prices, international factor mobility, policy spillovers and the international dimension of inflation dynamics.
