On April 22, 2015, CIGI’s Global Economy Program co-hosted a workshop with the Mexican Council on Foreign Relations to discuss Mexican perspectives on sovereign debt restructuring. Taking place in Mexico City, the workshop featured expert participants from the public and private sectors, as well as think tanks and academia. The purpose of the workshop was to promote dialogue on the timely and important issue of sovereign debt restructuring, and gain insights from a wide range of experts with first-hand knowledge of the country’s historical experience and current engagement with sovereign debt issues. From the discussions that transpired, four key themes emerged: global risks; crisis prevention; crisis management; and the growing role of China. This policy brief reviews and elaborates on these key themes.
