Ministries of Finance
Each finance ministry has its own unique set of challenges depending on the country's level of wealth, debt, sovereign risk and financial sophistication. Many have had to take unprecedented steps to contain the financial crisis including stimulus spending, asset purchases and guarantees. These activities in turn have resulted in a transformed mandate for finance ministries globally.
Demonstrating the highest levels of transparency and efficiency is essential for every finance ministry, despite the differences in financial infrastructure that exist across regions.
