In November 2010, an agreement was reached on the overall organisation of the capital and liquidity reform package. This agreement is now known as Basel III. Basel III builds on the previous Basel I and II agreements and is part of an ongoing process to improve the regulation of the banking sector. The agreement aims to prevent banks from harming the economy by taking more risks than they can cope with. Basel III, also known as the Third Basel Accord or the Basel Standards, is part of ongoing efforts to improve the international framework for banking regulation. It draws specifically on the Basel I and Basel II documents as part of a campaign to improve the banking sector`s ability to cope with financial constraints, improve risk management and promote transparency. In 2009, the Committee was extended to 27 jurisdictions, including Brazil, Canada, Australia, Argentina, China, France, Germany, India, the Netherlands, Russia, Hong Kong, Japan, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Singapore, Luxembourg, Germany, Turkey, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, South Africa, the United Kingdom, the United States, Indonesia and Belgium. Former US Secretary of Labor Robert Reich argued that Basel III does not go far enough to regulate banks, saying insufficient regulation was a cause of the financial crisis. .
