It aims to bring female treasury practitioners together to share their experiences, challenges, successes and failures, as an inspiration for all operating in this field.Read more

India is the main focus of this edition of Treasury Today Asia. 2013 has not been kind to the tenth largest economy by nominal GDP and member of the exclusive BRIC circle. The Federal Reserve’s hint at unwinding quantitative easing (QE) early in the year caused the Indian rupee to fluctuate wildly; it hit an all-time low against the US dollar in August. This issue contains a special report on the causes and consequences of the rupee volatility, including an interview with the treasury team at Larsen & Toubro, a technology, engineering, construction and manufacturing company based in Mumbai.

However, from early 2012, China’s growth began to slow as a negative consequence of the debt crisis in the Eurozone – one of their biggest markets for Chinese goods. But at the World Economic Forum’s summer meeting in Tianjin, premier Wen Jiabao remained optimistic, stating that China’s economy will soon stabilise, before continuing its “fast and stable” growth.Read more
