Brady Plan


An agreement in 1989 by which Mexico’s external debt was restructured. The plan was suggested by, and named after, the US Secretary of the Treasury. It involved a mixture of debt reduction and ‘new money’ in the form of credit extensions from creditors who chose not to reduce their exposure.
