With the economy already at full employment what is the appropriate timing and pace of interest rate increases? Given the new administration’s proposed tax cuts and infrastructure spending in an economic environment already facing some wage-push inflation pressure, would the Federal Reserve be faced with decisions to hike interest rates faster than expected?

With the US Federal Reserve Bank expected to raise interest rate in 2017, how will the emerging world respond to that in their monetary policymaking? What impact would a higher cost of capital have on business investment decisions? And what impact does the strong dollar have on the trajectory of either fiscal or monetary policy in emerging economies, especially given the increasing uncertainties surrounded by the US trade policy?
In April's Economics Watch Emerging Market View, we will focus on the key developments in monetary policies across the major emerging economies, and the potential impacts on businesses in those countries.
Who Should Attend: Analysts, economists, business executives
