The financial crisis that hit the world economy in October 2008 continues to keep the world on the brink. The sovereign debt crisis in several European countries in the euro zone has serious implications. The Indian economy is also passing through difficult times. The exchange rate of the rupee, the commercial banks’ NPA levels, India's growth rate, the negative growth of trade, rising corruption and the policy paralysis are all causes for worry. During his welcome address Mr Ramesh Agrawal said that A vibrant and healthy market for financial services is essential for economic performance and growth. With the increased level of globalization, the importance of financial institutions has grown but a number of global risks have emerged. The on-going crisis raises serious questions about the stability of banks and other financial institution as well as their ability to appropriately supply finance to the real sector. In his address Mr Sudhir Deoras said that a rebound of the economy is expected to be a gradual process. In these times the corporate sector looks at the Reserve Bank of India for the much needed monetary stimulus to revive the moderating growth.
