During the second quarter, central government debt grew by EUR 6.1 billion and was EUR 91.9 billion at the end of June. The stock of bonds issued by central government grew by EUR 3.3 billion, the stock of short-term debt instruments by EUR 1.3 billion, and those of both short and long-term loans by EUR 1.4 billion during the quarter.

The debt of local government, i.e. municipalities and joint municipal boards, grew by EUR 0.1 billion during the second quarter and stood at EUR 12.5 billion at the end of June. Short and long-term loans decreased but the stock of short-term debt instruments increased.

General government debt by quarter describes general government’s debt to other sectors of the national economy and to the rest of the world, and its development is influenced by changes in both unconsolidated debt and internal general government debts. Consolidated general government debt is derived by deducting debts between units recorded under general government from unconsolidated gross debt. For this reason, general government debt is smaller than the combined debts of its sub-sectors.
