G20 Common Framework

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Common Framework is intended to deal with insolvency and protracted liquidity problems, along with the implementation of an IMF-supported reform program.

G20 official creditors—both traditional “Paris Club” creditors, such as France and the United States, and new creditors, such as China and India, which, as shown in the chart below, overtook the Paris Club as lenders in the last decade—agreed to coordinate to provide debt relief consistent with the debtor’s capacity to pay and maintain essential spending needs.

The Common Framework requires private creditors to participate on comparable terms to overcome collective action challenges and ensure fair burden sharing.
