Sept 18 (Reuters) - Deputies from the Group of Seven finance ministries and central banks are regularly discussing the economic situation but no meeting of finance ministers is planned before their regular meeting in Washington in October, a G7 source said.
“We are talking regularly but no meeting is likely at this stage before the one in October,” the source, who is involved in G7 meetings, told Reuters.
The G7 is scheduled to meet in Washington on Oct. 10 before a meeting of the International Monetary Fund.
The source said there would be a Financial Stability Forum meeting before the G7, but that this had been planned long before the current market developments.
“It is normal that the FSF has a meeting,” the source said. The Dutch central bank confirmed on Thursday it would host on Sept. 29 a meeting of the Financial Stability Forum, a group including central banks, supervisors and government treasury departments.
