In this interview and Q&A session, Moody’s analysts will analyse the fiscal and external challenges faced by African governments at a time of unprecedented economic, financial and social upheaval, and the potential benefits of official sector liquidity relief set against the potential credit implications arising from the G20's call for private sector creditors to participate.
What will be discussed:
How and why many low income countries are experiencing acute foreign-exchange liquidity shortages?
How much relief does DSSI actually offer for those eligible sovereigns relative to the challenges they face?
Can near-term liquidity relief help put longer-term debt trajectories back on track?
Which African countries are most vulnerable to the potentially long-lasting effects of the coronavirus shock?
