Statistical Press Release - Public debt - September 2018

Today, Banco de Portugal publishes statistics, in Table A.15 of the Statistical Bulletin and in BPstat, on public debt for September 2018.

In September 2018, public debt stood at €249.0 billion (Chart 1), a decrease of €0.3 billion from the end of August. This was essentially due to a €0.6 billion decrease in debt securities, partially offset by the increase in Treasury bonds and other general government deposits (Chart 2).

General government deposits rose by €0.9 billion, with public debt net of deposits decreasing by €1.2 billion from the previous month, to a total of €223.7 billion.
