Government Cash Management: trends and challenges
Jun 28, 2017, 9:00 am-10:30 am (U.S. Eastern Daylight time)

In this webinar, we aimed to foster a broad discussion among government debt practitioners and facilitate sharing of experience and key lessons. Given the particularities of cash management across countries, a panel format has been chosen so that speakers will focus on key questions/issues of wide interest for the audience, rather than present the details of their respective systems. The panelists, Arturo Herrera, Manager, Governance Global Practice, World Bank Group, Réz András, Deputy CEO, AKK, Hungary, and Antonio Juambeltz, Debt Management Unit, Uruguay, highlighted challenges faced in developing and implementing effective government cash management, its interaction with public debt management, and other economic policies.
