Swedish Debt Office assists Ukraine through EU project

News 4 June 2010

The Debt Office is participating in an EU project to improve debt management in Ukraine, which will assist the country in establishing sound state treasury management. The EU gave the go-head for the project on 31 May.

This project is a "twinning project", which means that countries receive support – agency-to-agency – to update policies and standards for their rules and regulations so that they will correspond to those of the EU as closely as possible. The aim is to counteract major differences arising between the newly expanded EU and its neighbours.

Sweden (through the Debt Office) is forming a consortium with France and Hungary, which will work to strengthen Ukraine in national debt management and budget forecasting.
