Government officials involved in cash and debt management.
The financial and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic have posed several challenges for government cash and debt managers around the world. Sharp fall in revenues and rise in emergency spending has driven up governments’ financing requirements despite constrained access to financial markets and higher borrowing costs. This webinar will discuss options for governments for ensuring the availability of adequate cash to meet its payment obligations in a timely manner. It will also consider strategic choices for debt managers to navigate volatile and dislocated markets. Institutional and organizational arrangements to ensure communication and coordination between cash and debt management, and between cash & debt management and monetary, fiscal and financial sector regulatory authorities, will also be reflected upon.
