Designing Government Debt Management Strategies

This one-week workshop guides participants through the rigorous processes of analyzing the financial cost/risk tradeoffs of the debt portfolio through developing a debt management strategy. Theoretical presentations and country cases illustrate the different stages of developing a debt management strategy. Hands-on exercises focus on quantitative tools necessary to support debt management decisions, such as calculating risk indicators and scenario analysis to compute cost/risk tradeoffs. Participants present the framework for debt management strategies in their respective countries to their peers.
