At the“Breakfast with AMRO’s Chief Economist”, Dr Hoe Ee Khor will share his insights about risks and challenges facing the ASEAN+3 region, and take stock of lessons learned from the Asian and global financial crises as well as policy recommendations to support continued resilience and growth. A renowned economist with 35 years of experience, prior to joining AMRO as Chief Economist in 2016, Dr. Khor was a Deputy Director of the Asia and Pacific Department at the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

AMRO's work focuses on conducting economic surveillance for member economies as well as the region as a whole and supporting the implementation of the regional financial arrangement, which is the Chiang Mai Initiative Multilateralisation with the size of US$240 billion. As a relatively new player in the field, with a team of seasoned economists coming from more than 10 countries in the region, AMRO hopes to provide fresh and different perspectives on key economic issues that are pertinent to the region.
