Debt Reduction Strategies and Risk Management

Many of the South East European countries experience insufficient integration of their cash and debt management functions, which leads to inefficiencies. An integrated approach can provide policymakers a full view of all the resources available as they seek to ensure sufficient liquidity to meet government obligations. The recent international financial crisis has highlighted the need for countries to manage their liquid financial resources as efficiently as possible. This workshop will help countries to reinforce debt and cash management operations to better manage and implement fiscal policy. Furthermore, it will explore the implementation of debt reduction strategies, and assist efforts to (re)attract foreign and domestic investors into domestic government securities markets.
