As part of the Public Financial Management Community of Practice (PFM-KIN) initiative, The World Bank organized a PFM Round Table on May 9 & 10, 2019. This was the first stakeholder consultation in a series of deep-dive technical sessions to be organized by PFM-KIN. The objective of this round table was to bring together stakeholders from select States to: (i) share the scope of their respective treasury modernization plan; and (ii) share information about the challenges they faced during actual implementation of specific PFM reforms in a ‘deep-dive’ (technical sessions). The reform areas were chosen based on prioritization done by participating states.
The Round Table was attended by officials from eight State Governments, including those being supported by The World Bank and Asian Development Bank-financed PFM reform projects, and officials from key entities such as the DEA, C&AG, CGA, NIC and GeM.
