Packing a library of knowledge in a carry-on: attending the Public Debt Management Workshop in Vienna

Packing a library of knowledge in a carry-on: attending the Public Debt Management Workshop in Vienna

There were two one-week workshops back-to-back, one on Designing Debt Management Strategies, especially for middle office staff (July 17-21) and the other on Implementing Debt Management Strategies, especially for front office staff (July 24-28). The courses aimed at capacitating finance ministry and central bank technical and management level staff directly involved in designing and implementing debt management strategies. One of the good practices of these workshops was to force participants to get all the relevant information on their debt management units by preparing brief pre-workshop presentations of the broad framework for debt management strategy design and implementation in their respective countries. This approach prepared the participants with critical thinking and gave the workshops a good start.
