About the Global Forum on Public Debt Management

The OECD Global Forum on Public Debt Management is a roundtable meeting where public debt managers from the OECD area (as well as regulators, central bankers, other financial policy makers and, on occasion, private sector participants) discuss best practices, experiences, and policies in the field of government debt management and the development of government and corporate securities markets with their counterparts from non-OECD countries.


The relevance of these Global Forums has increased over the years as debt managers from emerging market countries increasingly face challenges similar to those of their counterparts from advanced markets due to pressures from global finance, the international nature of financial volatility, and the related need to share and implement best practices in this policy area. In addition, emerging markets have become more important players.


Governments, investors, and financial intermediaries in both advanced and emerging markets stand to gain from debt managers making further progress in implementing best practices.


The Global Forum is organised under the aegis of the OECD Working Party on Debt Management and financially supported by the Japanese government.
