Based at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, the Center for Pacific Basin Studies is a program "to promote cooperation among central banks in the region and enhance public understanding of major Pacific Basin monetary and economic policy issues." On the site, visitors can find graphs that document the transformation of the Japanese auto industry, links to conference proceedings, and the Pacific Basin "Notes" series. The "Notes" series is well worth a look, as it includes commentaries on Asia's financial stability, Chinese capital investments, and interprovincial inequality in China. More of their work can be found in the "Publications" area of the site, and it includes their annual reports dating back to 2000 and their working papers. The site also has a link to their "Research Seminars", and visitors can find out about participating in future seminars or just learn about past seminars.
