Banco de Portugal   Public Debt   Statistical Bulletin

Today, Banco de Portugal publishes statistics, in Table A.15 of the Statistical Bulletin and in BPstat, on public debt for May 2017.

In this period, public debt stood at €247.3 billion (Chart 1), a decline of €0.2 billion from the end of April (Chart 2). This change reflects a fall in loans by €0.7 billion, which was partially offset by net issues of securities of €0.5 billion.

Central government deposits declined by €0.6 billion. Therefore, public debt net of central government deposits increased by €0.4 billion from the previous month, totalling €228.1 billion.
