Effective Domestic Debt Management in Developing Countries

The management of domestic debt is a major policy issue in many Commonwealth countries. As part of its advisory service in debt and resource management, the Commonwealth Secretariat held three workshops on Effective Domestic Debt Management; one for the Caribbean region, one for the Asia/Pacific region and one for African countries. Their object was to help developing Commonwealth countries to manage their debt more effectively by discussing the issues involved and learning from each others’ experience. This report is a compendium of the discussions and papers read at these workshops.
