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 1-5 October 2018.

The objective is to train about 20 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 be a follow-up to the MTDS workshop organized in February 2017.

It will go through the various stages of the MTDS methodology, covering the new features of the analytical tool and focusing on strategy formulation as well as the interpretation of their output.

By the end of the workshop, participants are expected to have a better understanding of the MTDS tool and its application in their home countries.
