From the Document: "This is the second of a new series of Debt Reports for 2020 to be published online, at regular intervals, over the course of the year. Debt Report 2020 Edition II is published at a time when many countries are struggling to cope with the deadly impact of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] and a large part of the global economy is shut down, generating both demand and supply side shocks. [...] Debt Report 2020 Edition II is focused on a preliminary estimate of the evolution of external debt stocks in 2019 in low- and middle-income countries and comparable developments in high-income countries. It elaborates on anticipated outcomes at the regional level and identifies the key countries driving these trends. It also highlights ongoing efforts to enhance the monitoring of debt statistics and transparency in reporting."
