December 3 - 5 2018  ·  The International Monetary Fund
ICGFM 2018 Winter Training Conference
PFM in a Changing World
December 3 - 5 2018  ·  The International Monetary Fund

Every country has embraced public financial reforms over the last decades. While many countries have succeeded, others have not met expectations. Yet, the demand for reform continues. This conference will focus on the political and organizational changes necessary for effective change with an emphasis on building required capacity.

ICGFM desires to take an evidence-based approach to examining “Public Financial Management in a Changing World” with the participation of country reform leaders, bi-lateral and multilateral organizations, leading consultancies and other experts. Conference speakers will present case studies of effective public financial management (PFM) reforms focused on political, organizational, procedural and technological changes that were required for success.
