Lebanon has defaulted on a foreign debt payment for the first time last March after years of political unrest and mismanagement of the economy, undermining its ability to serve a debt burden that equals more than 170 percent of its GDP.
 
In a statement, the group of Lebanon’s bondholders said that it pinned hopes that the new government “would promote a rapid, transparent and equitable debt restructuring process."
 
"Such a process will require the government to engage meaningfully with the International Monetary Fund, Lebanon's International creditors and partners of the official sector," the statement added.
