June 25-27, 1999 • Kyoto, Japan

The second annual Japan-U.S. Symposium was held at the Kyoto International Conference Hall in Kyoto, Japan. The Japanese financial system had begun to emerge from its crisis with the recapitalization of the Japanese banks and continued reform of the regulatory system. There was hope that Japan had begun to turn the corner toward more general economic recovery combined with concern over the increased role of the Japanese government in the economy. The international financial system was in the process of responding to the lessons of the 1998 Asian financial crisis through the spawning of the new International Financial Architecture.
