Workshop on Managing Sovereign Debt Portfolios in Adverse Market Conditions

05/15/2023 - 05/19/2023 at Mauritius

The workshop aims to provide a platform for sovereign debt managers in the two regions to share experiences and understand the implications of rising inflation, tightening global financing conditions and a stronger US dollar on sovereign debt portfolios and the implementation of medium-term debt management strategies. Experts will explore areas in which sovereign debt managers may need to consider in their response to adverse market conditions. These include exploring alternative financing mechanisms, debt restructuring options, recalibrating debt management strategies, and strengthening investor relations and debt transparency. The objective is to support sovereign debt managers’ efforts to manage cost and risks arising from the adverse market conditions, while ensuring governments’ financing needs and payment obligations continue to be met.
