CONSOLIDATION PERIOD

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
In Paris Club restructuring agreements, the period in which debt-service payments to be restructured (the “current maturities consolidated”) have fallen or will fall due. The beginning of the consolidation period may precede, coincide with, or come after the date of the Agreed Minute. The standard consolidation period is one year, but sometimes debt payments over a two- or three-year period have been consolidated, corresponding with a multiyear arrangement with the IMF.
