Nicaragua's foreign debt reaches $3.46 billion

The balance of the external debt at the close of the first semester this year rose to $3.46, an increase of $25 million between April and June.

Monday, September 29, 2008

For the Central Bank, the country's foreign debt "reflects a positive tendency" that will lead the country to a sustainable level of debt.
The payment capacity indicator, that is, the balance of the external debt with regard to national exports, "reflects in time a positive tendency;" in June it was equivalent to 1.6 times the exports, "close to the level considered to be sustainable" by the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HICP) initiative which is equivalent to 1.5 times the exports.
