UNCTAD, the National Treasury of South Africa and the Macroeconomic & Financial Management Institute of Eastern and Southern Africa (MEFMI) will jointly organizes a workshop on Sovereign Asset and Liability Management.
The workshop will be held from 30 September to 3 October 2013 in Midrand, South Africa.
Asset Liability Management (ALM) can effectively complement public debt management in monitoring risk and reducing debt vulnerabilities.
The workshop will provide an opportunity for countries in the region to learn the main concepts, objectives, and instruments employed in sovereign ALM.
The workshop will highlight the benefits of an ALM approach for sovereigns and will discuss the challenges faced in adopting this approach and examine the solutions to these challenges that have been devised by the National Treasury of South Africa.
The workshop is aimed at strengthening the capacity of Debt Management Offices (DMOs) in the region to manage their public debt within an ALM framework.
The workshop is part of the activities of the UNCTAD Development Account project "Strengthening Capacity for Effective Asset and Liability Management in National Debt Management Offices".
