The region’s premier institution, Bank Indonesia Institute – Bank Indonesia, is pleased to host the 17th Bulletin of Monetary Economics and Banking (BMEB) International Conference and Call for Papers on “Synergy and Innovations in Strengthening Resilience and Economic Revival” in collaboration with the Asia-Pacific Applied Economics Association (APAEA). Synergy and innovation have a positive impact on economic resilience and economic growth by improving the efficiency and productivity of the economy, creating new industries and markets, and helping the economy to adapt to changing conditions. This call for paper encourages papers that (a) evaluate and discuss the synergy between economic policies (monetary and fiscal), (b) examine the challenges in economic revival including efficiency and competitiveness, (c) analyze the influence and impact of industry downstreaming and their contribution to economic growth, and (d) oversee the influence and impact of digitalization of transactions and payments on the acceleration to the Indonesian economy.  

The BMEB is an international peer-reviewed journal. The BMEB focuses on a broad range of topics covering monetary economics and policy, finance and banking, macro-prudential policy, payment systems, financial stability, financial markets, and structural reform that are of regional and global relevance. The BMEB’s scope is global and the journal endeavours to publish high quality research that makes a contribution to the literature and/or has an impact on policy making.  In this regard, the BMEB welcomes research papers from both central bank and non-central bank economists, academics, and policy makers regardless of their institutional affiliation and geographic location. Since 2019, the BMEB has been indexed in Scopus, listed in Australia Business Deans Council (ABDC) Journal Quality List, and included in SINTA-1 Accreditation by the Ministry of Research and Higher Education – The Republic of Indonesia.
