Fiscal Forum: Leveraging Fiscal Rules and Frameworks to Navigate Today's Fiscal Challenges

April 20, 11:00 AM EDT

Add to Calendar 4/20/2024 11:00:00 AM 4/20/2024 12:15:00 PM America/New_York Fiscal Forum: Leveraging Fiscal Rules and Frameworks to Navigate Today's Fiscal Challenges The high-level panel discussion will be the fourteenth session of the IMF Fiscal Forum. The discussion will cover cross-country experiences and challenges in designing and implementing rule-based fiscal frameworks. At this juncture, large fiscal deficits and the surge in public debt seen in many parts of the world pose fiscal risks. These are compounded by the growing budgetary pressures from climate, aging, and meeting sustainable development goals. How can countries leverage fiscal rules and frameworks, balancing the need for flexibility in stabilizing the economy in a shock-prone world with the need to preserve the credibility of fiscal policy? How should countries accommodate growing budgetary demands within credible frameworks? The panel will bring in senior policymakers to discuss the fiscal rules in light of their recent experiences and examine the practical challenges countries face. IMF HQ1 3rd floor Meeting Hall A&B
