Monetary-Financial Stability Department, Macroprudential Policy Division
Director

July, 2017

“It was the most amazing experience that I have been through in my life.”

What was your experience like at GLOPAC?
I obtained knowledge about how macroprudential policy framework is run in Japan and the responsibilities of Ministries involved.

What is the most important thing you learned?
I learned that cooperation and sharing both information and responsibilities between ministries is the best way to get the job done well.

How are you applying what you learned?
I included the lessons learned at JFSA in my consulting report to the management of the State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) with regards to establishing macroprudential framework in Vietnam.

What would you like to tell people who are considering applying?
The GLOPAC fellowship is not only a chance to study in economically advanced countries, and with people that have rich professional knowledge and experience, but also to share your experience with others from different countries all over the world. You have the opportunity to share and learn about each other’s jobs and lives, and to experience life in Japan together. It was the most amazing experience that I have been through in my life.

Is there anything else you would like to add?
If I have a chance to come back to Japan, I will take the opportunity to get more experiences and memories about the country and friendly people in Japan.

“It was a once in a lifetime experience.”

What was your experience like at GLOPAC?
It was a once in a lifetime experience. I was amazed by the country and its people, where traditional values and culture coexist with modern life and advanced technology. It was also a personal challenge to meet and share the program and our lives with a multicultural group of people.

What is the most important thing you learned?
In addition to the technical knowledge that I acquired and was able to share, I found the lessons about Japanese culture and values highly valuable.

How are you applying what you learned?
As soon as I came back, I shared what I had learned within my organization and with my family and friends.
On a daily basis, I am using the experience and knowledge acquired in both my professional and personal life. I am especially reminded of the importance of Japanese values such as politeness, punctuality, and hard work.

What would you like to tell people who are considering applying?
In my opinion professionally, the program allows you to learn about the problems and challenges that other countries are facing in financial matters, which enriches the knowledge of all the participants. Additionally, the follow-up reunions and the networks created between the attendees, former visiting fellows, and GLOPAC coordinators are powerful tools to share lessons learned and make future connections. Furthermore, it is an unforgettable personal experience to meet people from different countries and cultures, and if they are as lucky as me, the program is a place to make valuable friendships.

Is there anything else you would like to add?
I would like to thank once again the GLOPAC representatives for giving me the opportunity to be part of this program.
