The V Thematic Workshop of the Latin American and Caribbean Public Debt Management Specialists (LAC Debt Group): “Advances in Debt Management under Current International Financial Crisis Framework”, that is being organized by the Capital Markets and Financial Institutions Division of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), will be held at the IDB-Headquarters in Washington DC, on October 30-31, 2008.

The workshop is intended for the Group of Latin American and the Caribbean Debt Management Specialists (LAC Debt Group). This initiative is part of the IDB support provided to the LAC Debt Group, through the program “Enhancement of Know-How and Institutional Capacity of Public Debt Management Agencies“.

This Fourth Workshop will focus on the analysis of topics that are currently affecting DMOs in the region. The first panel will discuss recent regional experiences on debt strategies, particularly those intended to dedollarize the debt. The second panel, under the framework of an overview of debt evolution in the region, will identify relevant statistics and indicators of debt. Finally, the third panel will explore the characteristics of recent turbulences experienced in the international financial markets, and will provide an opportunity to debate on the possible impacts of this crisis in Latin American and Caribbean debt markets.
