About the Global Forum on Public Debt Management
The OECD Global Forum on Public Debt Management is a roundtable meeting for public debt managers from the OECD area (as well as regulators, central bankers, other financial policy makers and, on occasion, private sector participants) to meet with their counterparts from non-OECD countries. The forum facilitates discussions on best practices, experiences, and policies in the field of government debt management as well as the development of government and corporate securities markets. The Forum also gives the opportunity to debate emerging challenges associated with complex interactions between public debt management, fiscal policy and monetary policy.
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.
The Global Forum is organised under the aegis of the OECD Working Party on Debt Management and financially supported by the Japanese government.
Participation to the global forums is by invitation only.
