In nominal terms, the debt was down by nearly 3 million euro from March, above all due to the early repayment of part of the debt to Japan, BTA reported.
The government-guaranteed debt also went down in April to 564.4 million euro, mainly due to a difference in the currency exchange rates.
At the end of the reference period, the public debt as a percentage of GDP was 15 per cent, keeping its March level. The external and domestic public debts stood, respectively, at 10.1 per cent and for 4.9 per cent of GDP.
In terms of composition, domestic indebtedness accounted for 32.9 per cent, and external indebtedness for 67.1 per cent of the public debt.
