I am really glad this discussion is taking place.  This is a global problem with inflation, commodity pricing as well as exchange rates.  This is not which manufacturer will come out on top, it will hopefully be a discussion of how to even the playing field so that the world economy recovers and countries that do business can find the exchange mutually beneficial.

"The weak US currency makes American goods cheaper overseas"

I guess US in particular is probably comfortable to see its currency depreciate to make it more competitive and to possibly help inflate away some of its mounting pile of debt. Moreover the fact there is no obvious alternative to Dollor as world's reserve currency makes it even more comfortable.

Taimooz, as you rightly stated that the discussion' should be centred on stabilising fluctuating exchange rates, I do agree.

'Trapped in currency and commodity price swing' seems to be a major issue at present- I wonder what the outcome of this meeting will be? It will be interesting to know how representatives from BoFa - Lynch's fixed income commodities will be able to present 'a strategy to discount' regional issues to these investors.

Great Discussion

I think this will be a great discussion and just in time as the entire world is witnessing economic changes. One of the most important aspect here would be finding ways to stabilize exchange rates and reducing the risks and uncertainty involved with fluctuating dollar value. Besides, the impact of the Japanese earthquake on the Asian economy and that on the overall world should also be discussed.
