The 2006 Global Meeting of the Emerging Markets Forum was held in Jakarta, Indonesia in September. PT Danareksa (Persero) of Indonesia was the local host and sponsor.
The Jakarta Meeting was co-chaired by former President Ramos and Michel Camdessus and had between 70-75 participants.
As at the inaugural meeting, the overarching theme of the 2006 global meeting was Private Capital Flows and Emerging Market Economies. Within this overall theme, four to five related issues were explored in depth, including global and regional financial integration, better deployment of the current “savings glut” in Asia, and mechanisms for financing huge infrastructure needs of fast growing economies.
