PRESENT VALUE OF DEBT-TO-EXPORTS RATIO (PV/X)

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Present value (PV) of debt as a percentage of exports (usually of goods and services) (X). In the context of the Paris Club and HIPC Initiative, sometimes present value is mis-described as net present value (NPV). In this context NPV/X has the same meaning as PV/X.
