This paper describes an efficient banking supervision as essential to a virile and stable financial system and also fostering the linkage between the financial sector and the aggregate economy as well as to reduce the likelihood and magnitude of a financial crisis. Recent development across the globe has shown that dynamic diagnostic instruments are required for identifying and managing risks, vulnerabilities and development priorities in the financial sector. The need to address the unfolding complexity of supervising the banking system in the context of a globalized world underscores the introduction of the joint IMF-World Bank Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP) in May 1999.
