How do Stronger Insolvency Laws Impact Borrower Decisions?


Policy questions
Policy questions

  • Study the impact of new out-of-court debt restructuring guidelines introduced in Romania in November 2010

    • The debtor and the creditor now have the option to enter into a mutually agreed upon debt restructuring, in a way that allows the debtor to continue doing business

    • Out-of–court restructuring is perceived as more effective than the court process because in successful cases, the dispute is settled earlier and the debt is recovered more often.

    • Currently, most delinquent borrowers enter insolvency
