Central Bank Macroeconomic Modeling Workshop (CBMM)

The CBMM Workshops were started at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand in 1998 after they had developed a model-based foreword-looking forecasting and policy analysis system (FPAS) to support their flexible inflation targeting regime. Since 1998 it has moved from central bank to central bank with the purpose of connecting central bank modeling efforts with research in academia. The last workshop was held on October 13 - 15, 2021 in Chile and included over 100 presentations by academics and central bank researchers. The next workshop will take place on November 9-11, 2022 and will be hosted by Central Bank of Colombia and will continue to cover hot topics in macroeconomics that are relevant for the design and implementation of frameworks to support monetary, fiscal and macroeconomic policies. Lets hope we achieve the same progress developing frameworks for fiscal and financial stability as we did developing conventional monetary policy frameworks.
