Debt Conferences


If you are interested in attending the next UNCTAD Debt Management Conference, please read this importance notice:

We regret to have to inform you that UNCTAD has taken the decision to postpone the next biennial conference that had been planned for November of this year. The postponement also applies to the parallel event that takes place every two years in conjunction with the conference, namely the DMFAS Advisory Group meeting. This decision was taken due to the continued travel restrictions and social distancing measures imposed by the current pandemic which would have impeded the successful organization of these events.

These two events are now tentatively rescheduled for mid-2022 when, hopefully, the above restrictions will have been lifted. Should restrictions persist at that time, virtual events may be organized.
We will of course continue to keep you informed about the expected timing and other logistical matters linked to the organization of the next conference.

UNCTAD organizes the Debt Management Conference every two years, providing a regular forum for the sharing of experiences and exchange of views between governments, international organizations, academia, the private financial sector, and civil society on current issues in debt management. It brings together senior national and international debt managers and experts from around the world to discuss some of the most pertinent topics in both external and domestic debt, debt management and public finance today. 

The presenters will be a balance of national experts, academics and representatives of civil society and of international and regional organizations. Debate and discussions will be promoted.
