Developments in Debt Management Since the Crises

This workshop aims to assess the main development and innovations that have been witnessed in debt management over the course of the last twenty years and whether these changes are sufficient to allow public debt managers to meet the significant challenges that lie ahead, both in funding their respective government’s requirements and managing their ever expanding debt portfolios. In particular, the workshop will assesses innovations in institutional and strategic practices surrounding debt and cash management in advanced and less advanced countries and the impact that these innovations have had in improving management of government finances. The course will also explore some of the developments in risk management that have been applied in an increasingly professional approach to financial asset and liability management in the government sector and the importance of an integrated approach to cash and debt management in seeking to maximize efficiency of financial resource management.
