New York, 18 May 2012
The Financing for Development Office of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (FfDO/UN-DESA) and The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) are organizing an Expert Group Meeting on Sovereign Debt Restructuring.
The Expert Group meeting is intended to encourage a frank, technical discussion of possible measures to enhance the effectiveness of the debt restructuring process and, as a result, improve the efficiency of global capital markets and reduce losses faced by creditors, sovereign borrowers and others adversely affected by the uncertainty surrounding potential disruptive debt scenarios. To facilitate the discussion, the closed meeting will be held subject to the Chatham House Rule by which comments can be reported but not attributed.
