Participants will also exchange views on how to better use and develop their Chiang Mai Initiative Multilateralisation (CMIM), a 240-billion-USD pool launched in 2010 that can be tapped through currency swap deals in times of a financial crisis.

A currency swap is a tool meant to defend against financial turmoil by allowing a country beset by a liquidity crunch to borrow money from others with its own currency.

The participants will also exchange opinions on the global and regional economic situation and policy responses.

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) comprises Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam./.
