End-June Public Debt Totals EUR 4,736 Mln

The public debt totaled 4,736 million euro at the end of June, of which 1,595.1 million euro in domestic public debt and 3,140.8 million euro in external public debt, the Finance Ministry said on Wednesday.

In nominal terms, the debt was down by nearly 18.5 million euro from May, above all due to a difference in the currency exchange rates, BTA reports.

At the end of the reference period, the public debt as a percentage of GDP was 15 per cent, down 0.1 percentage points on May. The external and domestic public debts stood, respectively, at 10 per cent and for 5.1 per cent of GDP.

In terms of composition, domestic indebtedness accounted for 33.7 per cent, and external indebtedness for 66.3 per cent of the public debt.

In June, the Finance Ministry auctioned off five-year government bonds worth 35 million leva on the local market.

Since the beginning of 2008 principal repayments and interest payments totaled 1,624.9 million leva, of which 1,272.7 million leva on the external debt, and 352.2 million leva on the domestic debt.
