Public debt up 3.22% in June

Brazil’s Federal Public Debt widened to USD 1.06 trillion last month, up from USD 1.03 trillion in May, the National Treasury Service said in a report.

Brasília – Brazil’s federal public debt widened from BRL 3.253 trillion (USD 1.032 trillion) in May to BRL 3.357 trillion (USD 1.065 trillion) in June, a 3.22% increase in nominal terms. The numbers are from the monthly public debt report made public this Monday (24) in Brasília by the National Treasury.

Federal public debt bond issuance reached BRL 74.1 billion (USD 23.50 billion) in June, with bond payments amounting to BRL 3.84 billion (USD 1.21 billion) and net issuances reaching BRL 70.26 billion (USD 22.29 billion) as a result.

The external federal public debt was up 0.91% in June from May to BRL 123.99 billion (USD 27.48 billion). “Concerning the external debt, the relevant fact was payments. No issuances were made, only payments of euro-denominated bonds that were originally issued in Italian lira. This means one less old, inefficient bond that we had outstanding,” explained the general coordinator for Public Debt Operations Leandro Secunho.
