Hong Kong Institute for Monetary Research
The Hong Kong Institute for Monetary Research (HKIMR) was established in August 1999 with the objective of conducting research in the fields of monetary policy, banking and finance that is of strategic importance to Hong Kong and the Asian region. The Institute will invite distinguished visiting fellows as well as local academics and researchers to undertake research on issues relating to monetary and financial developments in Hong Kong and the region.
The Institute was one of the initiatives announced in the Policy Objectives of the 1998 Policy Address by the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The Institute is affiliated to the HKMA, and is funded by grants from the Exchange Fund.
