On November 13, G20 finance officials agreed to a new “Common Framework” for dealing with debt issues beyond the scope of the Debt Service Suspension Initiative (DSSI). The issue of high debt burdens has become especially relevant as developing countries, in particular, struggle to manage the economic fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic. Hailed by some policymakers as “historic,” the Common Framework has also been criticized for not going far enough to resolve debt crises.

Please join the CSIS Economics Program for a discussion on the new Common Framework and what it will mean for countries hit hardest by the economic fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Keynote Speaker:

Brent McIntosh
Under Secretary for International Affairs, U.S. Department of the Treasury

In discussion with:

Mark Sobel
U.S. Chairman, OMFIF; Former Deputy Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of the Treasury

Stephanie Segal
