As concessional external financing flows to developing countries continue to dwindle, domestic debt markets are increasingly becoming important sources for funding development priorities. As a result, the development of local currency debt markets is becoming a priority, as there is need to enhance their capacity to support public sector financing requirements. Despite considerable progress in establishing domestic financial markets in the region, they have remained undeveloped relative to those in other emerging economies. The markets are still characterized by lack of liquidity due to instrument fragmentation and narrow investor base, and this has resulted in high risk premiums. In addition, lack of liquidity in the secondary market inhibits development of a reliable yield curve that could provide a risk-free benchmark for other corporate borrowers.

In this regard, this workshop is designed to develop practical skills needed to effectively manage domestic debt and drive reforms in financial markets. It will focus on strategies for meeting government financing needs while enhancing market development. The knowledge and skills acquired is expected to enhance officials’ capacity to drive reforms in the domestic financial markets and manage debt within the framework of fiscal prudence and macroeconomic stability.
