Business and Market Discussions / Jaime Saavedra : Global Education 00:29:00 2017-12-11
It’s going to be a busy week with the focus on central banks this week. The Fed is expected to raise interest rates by a quarter of a per cent when it completes its monetary policy meeting on Wednesday. On Thursday, it’s the ECB’s turn where analysts will home in on its growth and inflation forecasts. The Bank of England also meets on Thursday but is expected to leave interest rates unchanged. Here in Asia, the Indonesian central bank will deliver its monetary policy decision.


European leaders gather in Brussels this Friday to discuss progress on Brexit and they are expected to authorise talks to move onto the next stage where the future relationship between the UK and EU will be discussed, including a trade agreement. That follows a historic deal reached on Friday on the terms of Britain’s exit from the EU. After completing the first phase of talks, leaders agreed that the UK will pay a divorce settlement of between €40bn to €60bn. A deal was also struck covering the rights of UK and EU citizens living abroad and the Northern Ireland - Irish border.

China’s policy makers meet this week at their annual economic work conference to set out their economic agenda for 2018.

Joining Monday’s Money Talk are Alex Wong of Ample Capital and Tariq Dennison from GFM Asset Management. In the second part of the programme, we discuss education with Jaime Saavedra, senior director of education at The World Bank.
