International Banking Regulation & Supervision: Change & Transformation in the 1990s is based on a conference which was held in Taipei on 22--24 June 1994. It represents a tightly coordinated & edited collection of scholarly & highly practical chapters prepared by leading experts on banking law. Important changes are taking place in the financial sectors in the Pacific Rim; vital roles are being played by Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore & Taipei.
This volume deals with the broad policy issues entailed in the liberalization & deregulation of the banking industry & is divided into two parts. Part I covers Liberalization & the Search for an Appropriate Banking Law Model, & Part II deals with Convergence of Supervisory Standards of International Banking. This collection, which was designed as a broad foundation for comparative analysis of changes & reforms occurring worldwide in international banking regulation & practice, will be an invaluable aid to all domestic & international government officials, executives of banking & other financial institutions, professionals (attorneys, accountants & other advisers) representing such institutions & academics, in trying to understand both policies & practicalities reflected by these rapid changes & reforms. A separate, but related, companion volume on international banking operations & practices has also been produced, entitled International Banking Operations & Practices: Current Developments , which deals with the relevant legal questions regarding the changing international financial practices.
