A Goa government spokesman said the IFAWG is a forum that brings together finance ministers and central bank governors from G20 countries to discuss issues related to international financial architecture. The group was established in 1999 as part of the G20 process and has since played an important role in shaping global economic policy.
The IFAWG has a mandate to promote international financial stability and reduce systemic risks through cooperation among its members. It also aims to strengthen the resilience of the global financial system against various sources of vulnerability such as cyber risks, climate change, and geopolitical tensions across the globe, he said.
One of the areas of focus for the IFAWG is capital flows and strengthening the global financial safety net. At the meeting, the group will also discuss the dynamics of capital flows and the optimal policy response for developing economies, strengthening the global financial safety net and efforts to reinforce financial system resilience against various sources of vulnerability, he added.
