State-Owned Enterprises in the Time of COVID-19

1 July, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Paulo A. Medas, Deputy Division Chief, Fiscal Affairs Department, IMF
John Ralyea, Senior Economist, Fiscal Affairs Department, IMF

Target Audience

Government officials and staff from Ministries of Finance and Economy and Central Banks.

Course Description

The pandemic has highlighted the role of the public sector in saving lives and livelihoods. State-owned enterprises are part of that effort. They can be public utilities that provide essential services; or public banks that provide loans to small businesses. But some are also struggling and adding to the burden on government finances. Drawing on the recently published April 2020 Fiscal Monitor, the presentation will explore how state-owned enterprises evolved in recent decades, how can countries get the most out of them, and their role in helping combat crisis such as the pandemic.

The webinar will be delivered by Messrs. Medas and Ralyea and will be followed by a question and answer session to address issues raised by participants.
