Banking market integration is accelerating in the Asia Pacific region, which has increased competition between domestic and foreign banks. Thus, the measurement of bank efficiency, competition, and liquidity creation in Asia Pacific economies is critical for both policy makers and bank managers to understand how these changes influence the domestic banking sector. These are important issues for policy makers because improved bank performance and competition should improve resource allocation, which will benefit society by intermediating more funds, providing a greater variety of products with better prices and higher service quality for clients, improving bank profitability, and achieving greater safety and soundness in the banking sector. These issues are also critical for bank managers because they can develop many different strategies, including rationalization, restructuring, consolidation, and so on, to improve performance in response to changes in their environment. This book consists of three empirical chapters addressing bank competition, efficiency, and liquidity creation in the Asia Pacific region.
