Statistical Press Release – Public debt – September 2019

Today, Banco de Portugal publishes statistics, in Table A.15 of the Statistical Bulletin and in BPstat, on public debt for September 2019.

In September 2019, public debt stood at €252.3 billion (Chart 1), a €0.2 billion increase from the end of August. This was mainly driven by an increase in deposit liabilities, which was partially offset by a decrease in debt securities and loans.

General government deposits rose by €1.0 billion, with public debt net of deposits decreasing by €0.7 billion from the previous month, to a total of €232.4 billion.
