“Debt sustainability analysis” by Mr. Shogo Ishii, IMF Consultant (former Director of IMF’s Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific) November 16, 2020

Guest Speaker Seminar

Guest Speaker Seminar

In conjunction with Sovereign Debt (Course No. 5123433 2020A1A2)

Open to all current students and faculty members

 

The IMF’s advice on macroeconomic policies is anchored in the analysis of a country’s capacity to finance its policy objectives and service the ensuing debt without unduly large economic adjustments. To this end, the IMF has developed a framework for conducting public and external debt sustainability analyses (DSAs) as tool to better detect, prevent, and resolve potential crises.

Mr. Shogo Ishii, former Director of IMF’s Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, is going to give an overview of DSAs with some specific country cases. This guest speaker seminar is held in conjunction with Sovereign Debt (Course No. 5123433 2020A1A2) to deepen student understanding about the nature of sovereign debt and an analytical framework developed by the IMF to assess debt sustainability.
