Public Financial Management in the Era of “The New Normal”

Monday, May 17 – Friday, May 21, 2010 Miami, Florida – USA

24th Annual International Consortium on Governmental Financial Management (ICGFM) International Conference

The economic realities resulting from the worst financial crisis in 70 years are commonly referred to as the New Normal. Public financial managers can learn how these new realities affect their responsibilities.

During the first three days, the key themes and topics that will be addressed include:

· Expenditure management in a new economic environment

· New techniques in bringing transparency to public finance

· Debt management challenges

· The expanding role and increasing responsibilities of public auditors

· Addressing a post-stimulus environment

· The impact on reform programs of the financial crisis

· Stimulating private sector investment

The ICGFM Miami conference will provide participants with an opportunity to learn from fellow practitioners. They can hear from development partners on how they are responding to new priorities. Opportunities will exist to interact with colleagues on best practices and practical lessons being learned.

The final two-days of the event will focus on the technical aspects of public financial management through a series of workshops. Specific topics will be announced shortly. Join government leaders, public financial management experts, international donors and program managers at the 23rd ICGFM Conference. ICGFM was established over two decades ago to serve as an international forum for public sector financial managers with an emphasis on developing countries.

Where: Biscayne Bay Marriott 1633 North Bayshore Drive Miami, Florida 33123 USA (305) 374-3900
