Presentation Outline:
What central bankers say can have a large impact on the real economy. Their spoken and written statements are frequently discussed in the media and in equity, economic, and fixed income research. This workshop will be of use to general and business translators as well as specialists in the financial field. After an extensive introduction to monetary policy and the fixed income (rates) market, participants will form teams to translate some select Japanese-to-English passages. The content will be complementary to that presented in Osaka and Cairns.

* This presentation will be presented in English.
