Time: 9:00 AM

Location: La Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala

The VIII Annual Meeting of the Latin American and the Caribbean Public Debt Management Specialists (LAC Debt Group), jointly organized by the Ministry of Public Finance of Guatemala and the Inter-American Development Bank, in collaboration with the Caribbean Regional Technical Assistance Centre (CARTAC), will be held in the Porta Hotel Antigua, in La Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala from July 11 to 13, 2012.

LAC Debt Group is the group of Latin American and the Caribbean Debt Management Specialists. The Group was formally created in March 2005 during its first Annual Meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Group's main objective is to strengthen the capacity of governments to manage public debt and to foster better management practices through the continuous sharing of experiences across countries and technical discussions. The annual meeting is the principal venue for the exchange of experiences and knowledge on public debt management practices.

Discussions and presentations include topics such as analysis and impact of the global economic situation on Latin American and the Caribbean public debt markets, public debt management and climate change, management and analysis systems of debt, and the relationship with risk rating agencies.

Sessions will feature conceptual presentations as well as presentations of regional and international experiences in order to illustrate best practices relevant to each topic. Participation from rating agencies representatives to analyze the situation of international public debt markets is expected. Additionally, to encourage the active participation of attendees in relation to their perspectives on the issues discussed, each session will contain a section for questions and answers. The program will conclude with a general panel discussion session, in which countries will be invited to briefly present the current state of affairs of interest to your debt offices and upcoming challenges in the management of public debt.

This is a closed event - participation is by invitation only.
