Workshop Series on Sustainable Financing for Development and Infrastructure starts with Module 1 on Debt Sustainability and Debt Management – the Macro Framework.
The MCDF and Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) are organizing a Workshop Series on Sustainable Financing for Development and Infrastructure. It has been uniquely designed in two ways. Firstly, for its comprehensiveness, bringing the world’s top experts to share their knowledge on how to ensure the fiscal sustainability of infrastructure financing across 10 Modules. Secondly for bringing both official bilateral borrowers and official and commercial bilateral lenders together in a forum where they can learn together and share their experience.
This was Module 1 of the Series on Debt Sustainability and Debt Management – the Macro Framework. Over 100 participants attended all three sessions from the Ministries of Finance, Central Banks, and lending institutions of over 30 countries from all regions of the world, including from heavily indebted countries. They deepened understanding of how infrastructure loans affect the macroeconomy, the international best practice on how to perform debt sustainability analysis including use of the IMF and World Bank’s Low Income Country Debt Sustainable Framework (LIC DSF).
