Debt Transparency and Data Quality in the Caribbean


Michele Robinson


This paper aims primarily to contribute to the literature on debt transparency by providing the results of a comprehensive survey on debt transparency undertaken in the Caribbean in 2019. Based on the survey results, it seeks to determine whether Caribbean countries share similar gaps in debt transparency and data quality as identified across the cohort of countries in the IMF/World Bank report. It then seeks to explore the possible causes for a lack of transparency, examines the implications and makes recommendations to improve debt transparency, highlighting the potential benefits.
