CS-DRMS - Helping Countries Better Manage Their Debt Portfolios

This half-day afternoon workshop, which runs back-to-back with the Developments in Debt Management Since the Crises workshop, will highlight the benefits of countries adopting debt management systems to effectively manage their debt liabilities through a demonstration of the Commonwealth Secretariat integrated suite of debt software. The presentation will emphasise that public debt management (PDM) objectives cannot be met in isolation: a multi-disciplinary approach is required. To support best practice in PDM, governments require specialist debt management systems that manage operational risk and operate with treasury management and other systems as part of a wider public finance management.
