Medium-Term Debt Strategy (MTDS) Training Workshop

Room IX, Palais des Nations

Key Issues

The UNCTAD DMFAS Programme, in collaboration with the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), is organizing a Medium-Term Debt Strategy (MTDS) training workshop in Geneva, on 6-10 February 2017.

The objective is to train about 30 government officials mainly from Eastern and Central Asian countries in the identification and formulation of a preferred medium-term debt management strategy, using the World Bank/IMF MTDS tool. A medium term debt strategy’s objective is to achieve a composition of the government debt portfolio that captures the government’s preferences with regard to the cost-risk tradeoff.

The workshop will cover:

  1. The process involved in developing an MTDS

  2. Hand-on exercises using the Excel-based tool

By the end of the workshop, participants are expected to have a good understanding on what goes into developing a robust and sound MTDS.
