Building capacity for research and policy formulation at the South Pacific Central Banks
The South Pacific Centre for Central Banking (SPCCB) was founded in 2016 following the inaugural Central Banking Symposium hosted by Griffith University, where discussions were held to elevate the region's study group into a research centre for central banking. The SPCCB was formed to bring together world class economic and finance experts, with a clear aim to help build capacity for research and policy formulation and is committed to developing capacity for research and policy formulation at the South Pacific Central Banks.
- to build a credible local capacity for policy-oriented research
- to generate research results for use by policy analysts and policy makers
- to promote links between research and policy
- to encourage retention of high quality researchers.
South Pacific Central Banks and Griffith University have established a jointly funded program to allow up to four suitably qualified, Central Bank supported candidates to enrol in the Doctor of Philosophy program at Griffith University each year.
