About this learning event
This workshop addresses the need for better fiscal data governance (FDG) practices to improve fiscal data quality in the PFM digital solutions. It will present the latest FDG concepts, approaches, trends, legal aspects, links with budgetary transparency, data interoperability, and data security. It will provide a platform for the countries in South and Eastern Europe to explore the benefits of enhanced FDG practices to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of PFM processes. Participants will be encouraged to share their countries' experiences and feedback on the FDG practices.
The workshop will comprise presentations from and discussions with staff and experts of the IMF's Fiscal Affairs Department (FAD) and government officials of participating countries. Officials will also participate in interactive group exercises to identify issues and challenges in the FDG and to identify opportunities to improve FDG practices in their home countries.
