Representatives from 21 different nations will arrive in the Isle of Man this Sunday (August 28), for the start of the Small Countries Financial Management Programme.
Treasury minister Anne Craine will welcome the 24 participants ahead of the executive education programme, which is now in its third year.
The initiative is implemented by the Small Countries Financial Management Centre and brings together officials from finance ministries, central banks and regulatory bodies in small developing countries for an intensive learning experience.
It has been made possible through the financial support of the Isle of Man government in partnership with the World Bank, the Commonwealth Secretariat, the Small States Network for Economic Development, and the University of Oxford.
This year's programme will be spread over nine days at the Isle of Man International Business School, and four days in Oxford.
It has a strong focus on financial integrity and will once again offer participants access to some of the best practitioners and professors in the world.
