2009 November Supplement
Feature: Pacing the world
With the worst of the global financial crisis now apparently in the past, the Australian – and to a slightly lesser extent, New Zealand – economy seems to have escaped with less damage than most of its peers. The country’s sovereign and agency funders are now refocusing their attention on mammoth infrastructure projects in an environment where fiscal tightening is a more relevant discussion topic than stimulus.
Roundtable discussion: Shining stars under the southern cross
The Australian economy has been the stand-out performer on the global stage this year and New Zealand has benefited from its proximity. The high-grade issuers from the Antipodean region as well as two supranational issuers and one domestic bank funder talk about their domestic funding strategies, the impact of new liquidity regulations and the merits or otherwise of bringing syndicated deals.
Key facts and figures
Summary data on Antipodean sovereign and agency issuers including ratings, risk weightings, funding volumes, purpose and ownership, and guarantee structures.

Profiles on the two sovereign and six semi-government issuers included in this Yearbook: Commonwealth of Australia; New Zealand Debt Management Office; New South Wales Treasury Corporation; Queensland Treasury Corporation; South Australia Government Financing Authority; Tasmanian Public Finance Corporation, Treasury Corporation of Victoria and Western Australia Treasury Corporation.
