Overview

 

This seminar has a dual focus, where the first week (Oct. 5-9, 2020) explores key topics and recent developments with respect to international borrowing and debt management. The goal is to assist policy makers and practitioners from emerging economies to deal with immediate crises, plan for long term challenges in a fast changing international borrowing and debt management environment, but also to engage with the immediate and urgent challenges. There will be a topical discussion of the increasingly important role of private sector and Chinese Sovereign and State Enterprise lending.

The second week (Oct. 12-16, 2020) focuses on the strategies, processes, skills and techniques necessary for conducting successful negotiations and renegotiations in respect to international borrowing and debt transactions and obligations. The discussion will also include the realities and challenges related to the inevitable policy and political considerations, but from within the perspective of a negotiation approach and strategy.

Participants can choose to enroll in either the complete two-week seminar or in the second week only as a self- standing seminar, and will then receive a certificate entitled “Negotiating and Renegotiating International Borrowing and Debt Management Obligations”.
