Over the past 12 years, a series of low-income countries have issued Eurobonds. Is this a pattern shift, as these countries aim to change their financing structure and move away from concessional public financing to financial markets? This is a possibility, but the recent repayment problems experienced by some of these countries suggest that this wave of issuances could end gradually.
