The IV Annual Meeting of the Group of Latin American and the Caribbean Debt Management Specialists (LAC Debt Group), jointly organized by the Ministry of Finance, Trinidad and Tobago and the Inter-American Development Bank, will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, on May 14, 15 and 16, 2008.

On this occasion, discussions and presentations will focus on the interaction of debt management offices with the markets, with monetary and fiscal authorities (or policy makers), and with market regulators and supervisors. Additionally, recent developments and achievements of LAC Debt Group’s projects will be presented.

The modality of discussions will include a first presentation of conceptual framework of the topic, followed by presentations of specific experiences in the region, as well as internationally. Each session will conclude with a roundtable discussion, with the intention of encouraging active involvement of participants with regard to the experiences of their countries in the topics discussed. The program will also include a concluding session, in which participants are invited to prepare a brief speech on the current situation of issues of interest in their debt management offices, including aspects such as the organizational structure, market development and debt strategies, actual and future projects, etc. The discussions will be helpful for disseminating information on the progress of debt management in the region, and eventually, for identifying key aspects that could be strengthened through the future work of the LAC Debt Group. During the last day, the Ministry of Finance of Trinidad and Tobago will be hosting a day of social activities.
