In each of the past two years, EACT deliberately organized a two-day Financial Training Seminar at World Bank (WB) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) for young professionals from around the world. The seminar aimed to provide young professionals with the knowledge of the basic functions of the two international financial institutions as well as recent global economic crisis, particularly the challenges and opportunities it brought about for developing countries. The two-day seminar got very good feedback from the participants unanimously.  Below is the retrospect on past year’s training seminar.

Comprehensive Introduction about the WB and IMF

By Senior Officers

On August 12th, 2010, the sessions started with the condensed yet well-delivered introduction of the functions of the World Bank from Mr.Onur Ozln, the Operation Officer from LAC region. Audience got impressed with his humorous speech style. Then it was followed by the presentation from Dr. Yibin Mu with the theme on “Some Viewpoints on Chinese Economy after Global Financial Crisis”. Dr. Mu used the simple examples to explain the most complicated economic recession problems. During Q&A session, a lot of good questions were raised and given the perfect answers by the two speakers.

On August 13th, 2010, the training was focused on the functions of the IMF Mr. Patrick, from SEC, made a detailed and excellent introduction of IMF with his over 20-year working experience at the Fund. Then Dr. Kevin Ross, the senior economist who is focused on the research on Switzerland, gave the overall summary of the economy situations in Switzerland. Ms. Yan Zhou, the senior project manager from Federal Housing Finance Agency, gave an in-depth analysis on the cases of Fanni Mae and Freddi Mae by tracing back to their founding history. She also gave some very sharp comments on the recent situations of the real estate in America and China.

Career Experience Sharing by Current Staff

The highlight of the two-day training was a panel discussion on “the Career and Life with the International Organizations”.   Three panelists, Dr. Yabei Zhang, Dr. Huihui Wang and Ms.Song Song from the WB and IMF talked about their personal and professional experience with the two international financial agencies. Their stories were very inspiring for the young audience. The direct communication with the panelists brought the understanding of the missions of the two institutions to a whole new level.
