Debt negotiators face enormous challenges in their dealings with their creditors. They have to deal with the difficult situation and pressures created by the governance problems in their respective countries, as well as with the shortages of skilled personnel and of time to prepare for negotiations. Nevertheless, these challenges can be met if the people who participate in the negotiations and re-negotiations know the procedures, rules and regulations implemented by creditors in order to carry out these negotiations. In addition, there is a real need for debt negotiators around the world to share information and best practice on their dealings with official creditors. This course is intended to develop the knowledge and skills of participants to negotiate with the Paris Club creditors and to allow participants and institutions to understand how best to establish strategies and tactics for these negotiations. Hands-on and practical information will be provided in this course, based on the experience of experts who have attended actual negotiation and re-negotiation sessions and meetings. This course will also provide ample opportunities for sharing of experiences and country case studies using our online discussion board facility.
