Abstract and Keywords

Developing economies in East and South Asia have seen their banking sectors go through important transformations. Pressures induced by the 1997 East Asian crisis and the global trend toward increasing financial integration have resulted in significant reforms and structural changes. In particular, countries in East and South Asia have embarked on efforts to clean up their banking systems, reduce state ownership, and allow greater foreign participation. This chapter describes recent changes in bank ownership structure in Asia, offering a detailed account of the reform process in the main economies in the region and evaluating the implications of these changes before and during the global financial crisis. In light of the recent global financial turmoil, the chapter also discusses the impact of the crisis on the banking sectors in Asia and empirically analyzes the behavior of foreign bank lending in the region during the crisis.

Keywords: Banking, Asia, Corporate Governance, Financial Crisis
