Government Debt Management: New Trends and Challenges

In order to manage the unique challenges of a debt management office, a combination of sound financial sector knowledge and profound public policy and economic analysis understanding is of essence. The fast evolving economic environment and traditionally rigid public sector employment conditions further complicate the much-needed capacity building efforts. In the opening session of the seminar, the speaker will share his experience of this complex role in a variety of different settings. During the following discussion, participants will be invited to share the main challenges and priorities facing their organisations, and their own interests and objectives in attending the seminar.
