PDM Webinar Series (forthcoming) – Survey findings


The new PDM Webinar Series initiative, in line with the informative and inclusive spirit of the PDM Network, intends to serve as a periodical forum for presenting and discussing traditional or innovative, policy-relevant research/documents/issues on all aspects of sovereign debt management.

The PDM Webinar Series will convene policymakers, DMOs, experts, researchers, market supervisors and regulators, and practitioners from diverse academic, policy, and market spheres.

A Survey about the organization  and main features of the PDM Webinar Series was shared with PDM Network subscribers and published on PDM Network social channels (Linkedin and Twitter) from March 14 to April 30, 2023.
