Tokyo Fiscal Forum Seminar: Towards Post-COVID-19 Fiscal Policy and Digitalization in Asia
For nearly two years, governments have provided fiscal support to safeguard firms, households, and vulnerable populations from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, many countries face a difficult trade-off between protecting livelihoods and rebuilding fiscal buffers to reduce their economic vulnerability.
Cohosted by ADBI, the Japan Finance Ministry’s Policy Research Institute, and International Monetary Fund, the Tokyo Fiscal Forum Seminar examined post-COVID-19 fiscal policy development and the role digital technologies can play in ensuring fiscal sustainability in Asia. It focused on ways to strengthen the credibility of public finances and the digitalization of fiscal management.
