Holger Van Eden (Deputy Division Chief, Capacity Development Office of Thailand, IMF)
Gerardo Una (Senior Economist, Fiscal Affairs Department, IMF)
The Webinar is designed for government officials and staff from the Ministries of Finance and Economy and Central Banks.
The Webinar provides guidance to low-income developing countries (LIDCs) and emerging market economies (EMEs) on how public financial management (PFM) systems can leverage digital solutions to support the implementation of COVID-19 emergency responses. Such digital solutions include financial management information systems (FMIS), fiscal transparency portals, and procurement platforms. The recommended measures could be implemented relatively rapidly during the crisis to streamline spending and control processes embedded in the information systems, enhance FMIS functionalities for cash management, and improve transparency of emergency responses through digital solutions. The presentation is followed by a question and answer session.
