The Basel Committee has outlined a plan to address the weaknesses the financial crisis has shown up. The plans include:  

  • strengthening the risk capture of the Basel II framework;
  • enhancing the quality of Tier 1 capital;
  • enabling supervisors better to assess funding liquidity at crossborder banks; and
  • strengthening counterparty risk capital, risk management and disclosure as well as governance practices.  

There will be various consultations in early 2009.
