Rising interest rates and slowing global growth are tipping a growing number of countries into debt crises. Yet global initiatives to help countries overcome these vulnerabilities have proved insufficient. Debt transparency remains inadequate. These vulnerabilities are making it harder for many developing economies to recover from the setbacks of the past three years. This event aims to explore what they can do to avoid debt crises and generate growth at a time when public-debt levels are at 50-year highs. It will bring together academic experts, policymakers from developing economies, and private-sector representatives to discuss potential solutions.
