Public Debt Management Conference – Paris, September 4-5, 2019

The Public Debt Management Network, an initiative fostered by the OECD, the Italian Treasury and The World Bank, organised the Public Debt Management Conference, held on September 4-5, 2019 at the Headquarters of the OECD in Paris, France.

The conference aimed at building, sharing and developing knowledge on public debt management. It is among the few events specifically aimed at promoting dialogue among policy makers (debt managers, central bankers, regulators), academics and market practitioners (investors, dealers, market infrastructures’ managers), to encourage knowledge sharing and collaboration across organizational and disciplinary boundaries, and to foster the development and dissemination of best practices in public debt management.


The conference explored techniques, analysis and proposals to improve the management of public debt in the context of a shifting macroeconomic, geopolitical, regulatory, and technological environment.

Topics covered institutional and legal frameworks, financial modelling and application for risk management in public debt management, coordination of public debt management with other public policies, and use of innovative financial technologies and instruments in the issuance or processing of debt transactions.
