Federal debt increased 2.77%

25 de julho de 2016

Brasília – The Federal Public Debt (DPF) increased, in nominal value, 2.77% in June in comparison to May, going from BRL 2.878 trillion (USD 876 billion) to BRL 2.958 trillion (USD 900 billion). The data, which includes internal and external indebtedness, was released this Monday (25) by the National Treasury.

The Treasury’s indebtedness can be a result of public bonds sales at auctions, via internet or through direct issuance. Another contributing factor for the increase can be the signing of loan contracts. In June, DPF issuances were worth BRL 64.18 billion (19.53 billion), while redemption reached BRL 3.07 billion (USD 934 million), resulting in a net issuance of BRL 61.11 billion (USD 18.60 billion). “It was the largest net issuance since June 2015”, said the general coordinator of Public Debt Operations, from the National Treasury, Leandro Secunho.

In the Annual Borrowing Plan (PAF), the government’s forecast for the Federal Public Debt, in 2016, was set between BRL 3.1 trillion (USD 943 billion) and BRL 3.3 trillion (USD 1 billion).
