Sovereign Debt Management Forum

The global financial crisis uncovered serious macroeconomic imbalances in the world’s largest economies and highlighted deficiencies in the regulation of global financial markets. The repercussions tested debt managers’ ability to deal with severe market fluctuations both in advanced and emerging market economies. While most emerging market countries navigated the crisis comparatively well, global imbalances remain and market turbulence remains an ever present risk. The sessions in this plenary will provide views on the crisis, market trends, and actions that policy-makers and debt managers should take.
