Honduras: External Debt Increases to 2%

Up to July 2019, the external debt of the public sector reached $7.310 million, a figure 2% higher than that reported in the same month of 2018.

Thursday, September 26, 2019

From the Central Bank of Honduras report:

The public sector external debt balance was US$7,310.2 million at the end of July 2019, US$67.7 million less than at the end of 2018. The above is explained by a net amortization of US$47.7 million (capital payments made for US$173.5 million that surpass the disbursements received for US$125.8 million) plus an adjustment for favorable exchange variation that reduces the balance by US$20.0 million, product of the appreciation of the US dollar against other currencies.

The Public Foreign Debt Balance with respect to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which measures the sustainability of the public external debt in the medium and long term was at 29.3% at the end of the seventh month of 2019, lower by 1.5 percentage points (pp) to that of December 2018 (30.8%), remaining below the prudential limit recommended by the World Bank.

When analyzing the balance of external debt per type of creditor, US$4,469.2 million (61.1%) is due to multilateral organisms, US$1,867.1 million (25.6%) to commercial (financial institutions and suppliers) and the remaining US$973.9 million (13.3%) to bilateral organisms. Also, per debtor the General Government owes US$6,942.8 million (95.0% of the total), the Non-Financial Public Enterprises US$275.1 million (3.7%), the Monetary Authority US$64.3 million (0.9%) and the Financial Public Institutions US$28.0 million (0.4%).
