EM crisis policies appropriate and sustainable (but with inflation clouds)
Hats off to EM policymakers, whose deployment of an unprecedented battery of monetary and prudential policies continues to deserve the favourable response from asset markets.

- APAC – Friday 19th February | 14:00 HKT
- EMEA – Friday 19th February | 10:00 GMT
- Americas – Friday 19th February | 16:00 EST
