Integrated Cash and Debt Management

This workshop focuses on strengthening cash and debt management processes and coordination between ministries of finance (treasuries) and central banks. We will discuss the interactions between cash and debt management, the importance of good cash forecasts and how these can be improved, and the interrelationship within ministries of finance when cash and debt management are carried out by different departments or units, and between the ministry of finance and the central bank with their respective roles in managing fiscal and monetary policy. This initiative will look at the importance of and actions needed for ensuring comprehensive coverage of the treasury single account and at how cash forecasts can be improved to support more efficient use of government cash and better borrowing decisions. Target audience: public officials from ministries of finance involved in budget execution, and cash and debt management; officials from central banks involved in monetary operations.
