DMO’s main responsibilities include the following:
- Managing Government Direct and Contingent liabilities and all of its related operations.
- Developing a strategy for the public debt (“Medium Term Debt Strategy” or “MTDS”) and an Annual Debt Borrowing Plan (“ABP”).
- Arranging, leading and issuing public debt in all forms (both local and international borrowing), refinancing, restructuring, and managing the Ministry of Finance’s guarantees to support the Kingdom’s public financing efficiently.
- Developing legal frameworks, governance and risk management policies related to the public debt management.
- Developing internal policies of the DMO and its management structure.
