GOODWILL CLAUSE

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Clause used in Paris Club agreements under which creditors agree in principle, but without commitment to consider favourably subsequent debt-relief agreements for a debtor country that remains in compliance with the restructuring agreement as well as with its IMF arrangement, and has sought comparable debt relief from other creditors. The clause can be intended for a future flow restructuring or a stock-of-debt operation.
